Andrew Carnegie Fellows
The Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program was established by the Carnegie Corporation of New York in 2015 to recognize a select group of extraordinary scholars and writers who receive philanthropic support for scholarship in the humanities and social sciences that addresses important and enduring issues confronting our society.
The fellows, who receive $200,000 stipends, are selected by a distinguished panel of jurors, and comprised of scholars and academic and intellectual leaders from some of the nation’s most prominent educational institutions, foundations, and scholarly societies. The criteria prioritize the originality and potential impact of a proposal, as well as a scholar’s capacity to communicate the findings to a broad audience. The award is for a period of up to two years and its anticipated result is a book or major study.
