Funding Opportunity: Collaborative Research Fellowships (ACLS)

Deadline for Applications: September 7, 2016

Title: ACLS Collaborative Research Fellowships
Sponsor: American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS)
Amount: $201,000 

Description: The aim of this fellowship program is to offer small teams of two or more scholars the opportunity to collaborate intensively on a single, substantive project. The fellowship supports projects that produce a tangible research product (such as joint print or web publications) for which two or more collaborators will take credit. The fellowships are for a total period of up to 24 months, to be initiated between July 1, 2017 and September 1, 2019, and provide up to $60,000 in salary replacement for each collaborator as well as up to $21,000 in collaboration funds (which may be used for such purposes as travel, materials, or research assistance). The amount of the ACLS fellowship for any collaborative project will vary depending on the number of collaborators and the duration of the research leave, but will not exceed $201,000 for any one project. Collaborations need not be interdisciplinary or inter-institutional. Applicants at the same institution, however, must demonstrate why local funding is insufficient to support the project.

How to Apply: Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Vanessa O. Lopez (volopez@austin.utexas.edu) in Liberal Arts Grants Services and return the Proposal Review Form by September 7.
