Most of us know of ACLS as a great source of academic funding, but fewer are aware that the organization is working to help recent graduates get started in non-academic careers as well. One of the most exciting of these opportunities is the Mellon/ACLS Public Fellows program. This initiative matches recent PhDs to two-year paid positions (with benefits) in non-academic settings. Placements range across a variety of well-known non-profits and government organizations, located nationwide. Whether you are planning to defend this year, or have received your PhD within the last four years, the Public Fellows program might provide the opening you are looking for. Check out the program website for more details.
And, as always, be sure to keep ACLS in mind for dissertation travel and writing fellowships as well!
