In the upcoming academic year, the Institute for Advanced Study will again take part in a program sponsored by the American Council of Learned Societies: the Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowships for Recently Tenured Scholars.

Mellon Foundation, ACLS is able to offer these fellowships with the goal of supporting more adventurous, more wide-ranging, and longer-term patterns of research than are current in the humaniteis and related social sciences. Applicants must submit to ACLS a research plan typically covering a 3 - 5 year period, during which time one year could be spent as a Member at the Institute, either in the School of Historical Studies or the School of Social Science.  Qualified candidates who would like to apply for affiliation with either School of the Institute under the auspices of this program should visit ACLS's website ( or contact ACLS directly:
