The Carnegie Corporation of New York has announced the inaugural cohort of the Andrew Carnegie Fellowship Program, which provides significant support for research in the humanities and social sciences. The program offers stipends of up to $200,000 to scholars, journalists, and authors pursuing innovative approaches to society’s grand challenges, such as threats to democratic governance, environmental destabilization, and the impact of new technologies on privacy. Vartan Gregorian, president of the Carnegie Corporation, said the work of the selected fellows has the potential to 'help inform the American public as well as policy makers.'
Among this year’s 32 awardees are five ACLS fellows: Shahzad Bashir, a 2004 Charles A. Ryskamp Fellow; Kevin Boyle, a 2001 ACLS Fellow; Timothy Snyder, a 1997 Postdoctoral Fellow in East European Studies; Thomas Sugrue, a 1995 ACLS Fellow; and Elizabeth Thompson, a 2002 Library of Congress Fellow in International Studies and a 1999 ACLS Fellow. Also among the winners is Leith Mullings, past president of the American Anthropological Association, who currently serves as a delegate to ACLS from that society.
More information on the program and awardees is available on the Carnegie website.
ACLS offers congratulations to all the fellows.
