The Mellon Emerging Faculty Leaders Award
The Mellon Emerging Faculty Leaders (MEFL) are building inclusive campus communities through their teaching, scholarship, and service. Awardees are early-career faculty members whose research focuses on contemporary American history, politics, culture, and society. In addition to bringing a diversity of perspectives to their fields, MEFL awardees are building support systems, networks, and affinity groups for their students and peers.
Funded by the Mellon Foundation and administered by Citizens & Scholars, the MEFL award provides a $20,000 stipend—$12,000 to be used for summer research support and $8,000 for research assistance during the academic year.
