The Mellon/ACLS Community College Faculty Fellowships recognize humanities and social science faculty who teach at two-year institutions and their vital contributions to scholarship, teaching, and their communities. The awards are tailored to the circumstances of these faculty and support their wide-ranging research ambitions. Fellows may use the awards to pursue projects with a variety of outcomes, including articles, book chapters, or books; course materials; exhibitions; community or campus events; online resources; and more. This program is made possible through the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
