Congratulations to Kate Epstein for winning a 2018 Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowship!
The American Council of Learned Societies is pleased to announce the 2018 Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellows. The Burkhardt Fellowship program, which supports recently tenured faculty as they pursue ambitious scholarship at a consequential stage of their careers, is made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Burkhardt Fellowships carry a $95,000 stipend and a $7,500 research budget, and allow awardees to take up year-long residencies at institutions whose resources and scholarly communities are ideally suited to facilitate the proposed research project.
