American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Public Fellowship Competition 2014

The ACLA has announced it's 2014 Public Fellows competition.  This year, the program will place 20 recent PhDs from the humanities and humanistic social sciences in two-year staff positions at partnering organizations in government and the nonprofit sector. Fellows will participate in the substantive work of these organizations and receive professional mentoring. Fellows receive a stipend of $65,000 per year, as well as individual health insurance.

ACLS seeks applications from recent PhDs who aspire to careers in administration, management, and public service by choice rather than circumstance. Competitive applicants will have been successful in both academic and extra-academic experiences.

  *   have a PhD in the humanities or humanistic social sciences conferred between June 1, 2011 and May 31, 2014;
