Join us to learn about the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation New Directions Fellowship competition.
Andrew W. Mellon Foundation New Directions Fellowships assist faculty members in the humanities and humanistic social sciences who seek to acquire systematic training outside their own areas of special interest. The program is intended to enable scholars in the humanities to work on problems that interest them most, at an appropriately advanced level of sophistication.
This is a limited submission competition. Institutions are invited to participate in this program and will be asked to solicit proposals from eligible faculty members in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. Eligible candidates will be faculty members who were awarded a doctorate in the humanities or humanistic social sciences within the last six to twelve years and whose research interests call for formal training in a discipline other than the one in which they are expert.
For 2021, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has invited Syracuse University to select one faculty applicant from the University for this competition. Interested applicants must submit several items, including a proposed budget of potential expenses ranging from $175,000 to $250,000 for a project period of up to three years.
We invite you to join us on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, from 10am to 11:15am via zoom to learn more about the Mellon Foundation’s budget guidelines, restrictions, and requirements for the competition.
Co-hosted by the Office of Research, Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations, and Syracuse University Humanities Center.
