Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship Applications due Oct 15

Applications for the 2018-2020 A.W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship are due Oct. 15. In this round, the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (CASVA) explicitly encourages applications in the fields of the visual arts and cultures of African Americans, Africa, and the African diaspora.

If interested, click on the Postdoctoral Fellowship Website for more information. This is a fantastic, highly competitive and valuable fellowship. It is great to see that CASVA is emphasizing applications from Africa-related fields. 

Applicants must have received their PhDs between October 1, 2012, and October 1, 2017, to qualify for the postdoctoral fellowship. If earlier than 2012, you may want to apply for the senior scholars' fellowship, and if you are still working on your dissertation, there are a few predoctoral fellowships (Mellon and Ittleson), but for these, you need to be nominated by your academic department.
