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 aim to produce a tangible research product (such as joint print or web publications) for which two or more collaborators will take credit.

A collaborative project is constituted of at least two scholars who are each seeking salary-replacement stipends for six to twelve continuous months of supported research leave to pursue full-time collaborative research during the fellowship tenure. The Project Coordinator must have an appointment at a U.S.-based institution of higher education; other project members may be at institutions outside the United States or may be independent scholars.

Application Details: The amount of the ACLS fellowship for any collaborative project will vary depending on the number of collaborators, their academic rank, and the duration of the research leave, but will not exceed $140,000 for any one project.One member of the project team must be designated as the Project Coordinator (PC). It is anticipated that the Project Coordinator?s institution will administer the funds for collaboration costs. Each project collaborator will have to complete the individual sections of the application (including personal and professional information) and upload a publications list. In order for an application to be considered, all project collaborators (Project Coordinator and additional collaborators) must have their application in SUBMITTED status by the application deadline of September 28, 2011.
NOTE: All Letters of Intent and Full Applications must be processed through Research Development & Services for institutional approval. Requests for Institutional approvals should be received no less than 3 days prior to the posted Sponsor deadline. A ROLA Proposal (bearing applicant, Chair and Dean electronic approvals) is required for each submission.
