Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring the Frederic E. Wakeman Jr./ACLS Fellowship in Chinese History.
The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is pleased to announce the establishment of the Frederic E. Wakeman Jr./ACLS Fellowship in Chinese History. The fellowship recognizes the seminal contributions of Professor Wakeman (1937–2006), a pre-eminent historian of modern China and longtime professor at the University of California, Berkeley.
Fellows will be selected through the respected peer–review processes within the central ACLS Fellowship program. Awards will range from $40,000 to $70,000, depending on the career stage of the fellow, and support six to twelve months of research and writing. In addition, awardees will be invited to present their research in China at the History Institute of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, with travel expenses covered.
The application deadline is September 27, 2017 for the 2017–18 competition. More information and application instructions may be found here.
