Carnegie Corporation - Andrew Carnegie Fellows

Internal Competition - October 29, 2020, by 5 p.m.
Sponsor Deadline - November 17, 2020, by 5 p.m.

From the Carnegie website:

The purpose of the Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program is to support high-caliber scholarship in the social sciences and humanities, making it possible for the recipients to devote time to research and writing that addresses pressing issues and cultural transitions affecting us at home and abroad.

The 2021 program will provide fellowships of $200,000 to up to thirty exceptional scholars, journalists, and public intellectuals, for a 12- or 24-month duration.

Eligibility: Andrew Carnegie fellowships are open only to citizens or permanent residents of the United States whose names have been forwarded by a nominator designated by Carnegie Corporation of New York. Individuals may not apply for the fellows program.

Fordham has been invited to nominate two fellows for this award - one junior (having received her/his terminal degree within the last 10 years) and one senior. Note that if awarded, an Andrew Carnegie Fellow may not also hold another fellowship of equal caliber at the same time.

If you want to be considered for this opportunity, please first review the Topics 2021 list found here: Topics 2021.
If your project falls within the topic areas, prepare the following:
1. a one-page summary of your project including brief work plan and timeline;
2. a short (250-400 words) narrative biography; and
3. an estimated budget for the $200,000. Budget categories provided by Carnegie Corporation include salary for yourself and research assistants, travel, conferences you plan to attend, and 'other'. Carnegie does not provide indirect costs; it will allow fringe benefits, but prefers that the university provide those in-kind. Please indicate if you plan to request a 12-month or 24-month fellowship duration.
Please email your internal proposal to Kris Wolff ( by 5pm on Thursday, October 29. Any questions, please contact Kris.
