Today, ACLS is the leading private institution supporting scholars in the humanities and related social sciences at the doctoral and postdoctoral levels, awarding over $15 million in fellowships annually. ACLS fellows are selected from thousands of applicants each year to pursue research that improves our understanding of the world, its cultures and histories.
