Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to USA PhD candidates to support dissertation research and writing in the field of art and cultural history in the United States, including Native American art. Funding is intended for proposals that employ visual studies or an art-historical approach. Projects should focus on an art object or image. The fellowships may be carried out in residence at the fellow's home institution, abroad, or at another appropriate site for the research.

Scholars asked to review applications in this program are instructed to use the following three criteria:

  1. The quality of the proposal with regard to its methodology, scope, theoretical framework, and grounding in the relevant scholarly literature.
  2. The potential of the project to advance the field of study in art history, both generally and in the specific field(s) it engages.
  3. The applicant's record of scholarly engagement and potential for scholarly achievement, taking into account the relative advantages and constraints on resources for the proposed project and over the course of the applicant's doctoral training.

Peer reviewers are asked to be mindful of ACLS’s commitment to inclusive excellence, and of how equity and diversity are integral components of merit. They are especially interested in supporting scholars who hail from diverse institutions and communities that are underrepresented in the academy.
