The Mellon Emerging Faculty Leaders Award is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and administered by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. The Mellon Emerging Faculty Leaders Award offers a $17,500 stipend—$10,000 to be used for summer research support and $7,500 for research assistance during the academic year. The award is structured to free the time of junior faculty who have passed their midpoint tenure review—including those from underrepresented groups and others committed to eradicating disparities in their fields—so that they can both engage in and build support systems, networks, and affinity groups that make their fields and campuses more inclusive. Eligible applicants must have passed their third-year review or their institution’s equivalent.

Selection
The Award will recognize junior faculty candidates who not only balance research, teaching, and service but also give great weight to the creation of an inclusive campus community for underrepresented students and scholars. The selectors will focus on and privilege service and leadership activities that address and ameliorate underrepresentation on campus, and give preference to candidates who embody a high standard of excellence. Ten awards will be made in 2019–20.
Eligibility
Mellon Emerging Faculty Leaders may be working in any field of the humanities or social sciences. Preference will be given to those whose work echoes and elaborates themes related to 20th- and 21st-century American history, politics, culture, and society, with emphases including but not limited to African American issues, women’s issues, and/or higher education.
