Call for Proposals for Fall 2020
Limited Submission Deadline: July 24, 2020
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s New Directions Fellowships provide support for exceptional faculty in the humanities and humanistic social sciences who received their doctorates between 2008 and 2014. Fellows pursue systematic training and academic competencies outside their own special fields in order to advance a cross-disciplinary research agenda. This fellowship does not aim to facilitate short-term outcomes, such as completion of a book. Rather, it is a longer-term investment in the scholar’s intellectual range and productivity.
Priority will be given to applications that manifest
- a strong focus on issues of race, ethnicity, and migration
- a focus on filling in the gaps left by more traditional narratives in the history of the Americas
Proposals from eligible CHASS faculty are solicited by July 24, 2020 for review by the Center for Ideas and Society’s Advisory Committee. One proposal will be selected for full development and submission by the Foundation’s deadline of September 28, 2020. Please do not contact the Mellon Foundation regarding this opportunity. Rather, please direct all inquiries to the Center for Ideas and Society.
