Doctoral candidate in history, Carl Kubler, was recently selected as a 2021 Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellow by The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS). Fellowships support promising doctoral students in the humanities and interpretive social sciences with a year of funding designed to help them complete projects that will form the foundations of their scholarly careers. The program, now in its fifteenth year, is made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. ACLS has named 72 fellows this year, the largest and most diverse cohort in the program’s history, selected through a multi-stage peer review process from a pool of over 1,000 applicants. Each fellow receives an award of $43,000 to support the final year of dissertation research and writing. In addition, fellows participate in a career development seminar to help them prepare for postdoctoral opportunities within and beyond the academy.
