Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) - Fellowships in Academic Libraries

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey - Center for Cultural Analysis (CCA) - Postdoctoral Associate Fellowship
For 2018-19, the Center for Cultural Analysis will sponsor five fellowships for Rutgers faculty, five fellowships for Rutgers graduate students, and two Postdoctoral Associate positions for external scholars. The CCA invites applications for fellows affiliated with the 2018–19 Classification seminar. We welcome proposals that investigate classification in intellectual, cultural, and social life from scholars in any field of the humanities and social sciences. Possible areas of inquiry include but are not limited to: cultural taste and social stratification; genre and genre systems; the meaning of media formats; the art/non-art opposition; libraries, universities, and other institutional organizers of culture; "folk" and "expert" taxonomies; the collection of data and control of populations by the state; classification struggle and the problem of the exception.

It belongs to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH).

Wenner-Gren Foundation - Post-Ph.D. Grants
Post-Ph.D. Research Grants are awarded to individuals holding a Ph.D. or equivalent degree to support individual research projects. The program contributes to the Foundation's overall mission to support basic research in anthropology and to ensure that the discipline continues to be a source of vibrant and significant work that furthers our understanding of humanity's cultural and biological origins, development, and variation. The Foundation supports research that demonstrates a clear link to anthropological theory and debates, and promises to make a solid contribution to advancing these ideas. There is no preference for any methodology, research location, or subfield. The Foundation particularly welcomes proposals that employ a comparative perspective, can generate innovative approaches or ideas, and/or integrate two or more subfields.
National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Fellowships
Fellowships support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources in the humanities. Projects may be at any stage of development.

The Law & Social Sciences Program funds the best proposals submitted within the field broadly defined, regardless of specific subfield, and strives to support an interdisciplinary community of scholars studying relevant topics.
