Julie Powell has won a coveted Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowship for her dissertation: The Labor Army of Tomorrow: Masculinity and the Internationalization of Veterans’ Rehabilitation, 1914-1924.

ACLS invites applications for Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowships, which support a year of research and writing to help advanced graduate students in the humanities and related social sciences in the last year of PhD dissertation writing. The program encourages timely completion of the PhD. Applicants must be prepared to complete their dissertations within the period of their fellowship tenure and no later than August 31, 2020. A grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation supports this program.

ACLS only awards 65 fellowships in this competition for a one-year term beginning between June and September 2019 for the 2019-20 academic year. The fellowship may be carried out in residence at the fellow's home institution, abroad, or at another appropriate site for the research. 
 

The total award of up to $38,000 includes a stipend plus additional funds for university fees and research support. In addition to the monetary support that the fellowship offers, Dissertation Completion Fellows may apply to participate in a seminar on preparing for the academic job market.  

Congratulations to Julie and to her advisors, Professors Alice Conklin and Bruno Cabanes.
