Call for Letters of Intent, Mellon New Directions Fellowship, 2017


Call for Letters of Intent (LOI)
Andrew W. Mellon Foundation New Directions Fellowships 2017

The University of Toronto has been invited to make one nomination for the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s New Directions Fellowships. These highly selective fellowships provide support for exceptional faculty members in the humanities and humanistic social sciences who received their doctorates between 2005 and 2011, and whose research would benefit from their acquiring systematic training and academic competencies outside their own disciplines in order to advance a cross-disciplinary research agenda. Unlike other fellowship awards, this program does not aim to facilitate short-term outcomes, such as completion of a book. Rather, New Directions Fellowships are a longer-term investment in scholars’ intellectual range and productivity.

To file a Letter of Intent, and for much fuller information about this fellowship, please see:
