The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is offering a new grant program that funds collaborative research in the humanities and related social sciences. ACLS Collaborative Research Awards will provide up to $140,000 per project for up to two years. Collaborations do not need to be interdisciplinary or inter-institutional, but must involve at least two scholars. Applicants at the same institution must demonstrate why local funding is insufficient to support the project. The deadline for applications is November 12, 2008.
ACLS also offers a variety of other grant and fellowship programs that support research in the humanities and social sciences. More specifics are available on the ACLS Competitions and Deadlines page.
