I have been asked to bring the following call for applications to the attention of scholars who might potentially be interested in applying for an ACLS Collaborative Research Fellowship. As a current ACLS fellow, I can only say the very best things about it and encourage people to apply (for further information on my collaborative research project with Nick Huggett, see here). If you submit a project in the philosophy of physics, you should take good care of explaining its relation to, and relevance for, the humanities. Here’s the call:
ACLS Collaborative Research Fellowships
The American Council of Learned Societies invites application for the third annual competition of the Collaborative Research Fellowships.
This program offers small teams of two or more scholars the opportunity to collaborate intensively on a single, substantive project in the humanities and the humanities-related social sciences. The fellowship supports projects that aim to produce a tangible research product (such as joint print or web publications) for which two or more collaborators will take credit.
Awards: Up to $140,000 per project.
Deadline: September 29, 2010.

During the 2009-10 cycle, ACLS awarded over $15 million to more than 380 scholars based in the US and abroad working in the humanities and related social sciences. Visit the Fellows & Research section to view recent awardee listings and profiles.
