Fellows receive an annual stipend of $70,000, access to employer-based health insurance, and ACLS-provided funds for relocation and professional development. This opportunity provides meaningful professional mentoring and career development programming, both in-person and virtually.

The Mellon/ACLS Public Fellows program is an initiative of the American Council of Learned Societies and is made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

The Asian Cultural Council advances international dialogue, understanding, and respect through cultural exchange activities in Asia and the United States to create a more harmonious and peaceful world. This mission is accomplished through fellowships and other programs that support individual artists, scholars, and arts professionals.
