The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) invites applications for fellowships offered by the Luce/ACLS Program in Religion, Journalism & International Affairs (RJIA), made possible by the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation. RJIA is a two-part initiative designed to foster new connections between scholars and journalists covering international affairs. The program offers an interrelated set of awards: programming grants for universities and fellowships for scholars in the humanities and social sciences who study religion in international contexts. More information is available on the program’s overview page.
The fellowships offer a $55,000 stipend, plus up to $5,000 for research costs and related scholarly activities. They may be held at the awardee’s home institution, one of three partnering universities, or any location suitable for the proposed research. Completed applications must be submitted through the ACLS Online Fellowship Application system no later than 9 pm Eastern Daylight Time, October 24, 2018. Notifications will be sent via email by late March 2019.
