The American Society for Theatre Research is a member of the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), which offers many fellowship and grant programs. In 2020-2021, one program - the ACLS Fellowships - will award up to 50 fellowships.
ACLS invites research proposals from scholars in all disciplines of the humanities and related social sciences. Given the disproportionate effect the current economic downturn has on emerging, independent, and untenured scholars, in the 2020-21
competition year the awards are designated solely for untenured scholars who have earned the PhD within the past eight years. ACLS welcomes applications from scholars without faculty appointments and scholars off the tenure track. You
do not have to be a member of ASTR or any other ACLS-member organization to apply.
