Andrew Carnegie Fellows


Limited Submission Program (LSP): This funding opportunity and the Limited Submission Program (LSP) is open to all Texas A&M University faculty and principal investigators who meet the eligibility requirements. Texas A&M and The Texas A&M University System agencies jointly administer this process to select the proposal(s) that will be submitted to the sponsor in response to this solicitation.


Institutional Eligibility:  Texas A&M may put forward a maximum of two scholars. Nominators from universities may nominate one junior and one senior scholar. Regardless of title, a junior scholar is defined as someone who received his/her Ph.D. within the last ten years, 2007-2017, for the 2018 fellowship program. 


PI Eligibility:  Andrew Carnegie fellowships are open only to citizens or permanent residents of the United States whose names have been forwarded by a nominator designated by Carnegie Corporation of New York. Nominators include university presidents, leaders of think tanks, and editors of various newspapers, magazines, and university publishers. Individuals may not apply for the fellows program. Candidates holding a terminal degree other than a Ph.D. are welcome.  In addition, we also welcome candidates with exceptional experience that qualifies them as a senior professional or intellectual, e.g., a journalist, author, theater professional, or current or former diplomat.


The proposal will be prepared and submitted by Sponsored Research Services (SRS).


Proposal Limit: 2, one junior and one senior scholar.


Summary:  The purpose of the Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program is to support high-caliber scholarship in the social sciences and humanities, making it possible for the recipients to devote time to research and writing that addresses pressing issues and cultural transitions affecting us at home and abroad.


The 2018 program will provide fellowships of $200,000 to between thirty and thirty-five exceptional scholars, journalists, and public intellectuals.


Nominations are evaluated by the jury based on the following criteria: 

* Originality and promise of the idea 

* Quality of the proposal 

* Potential impact on the field

For the 2018 program, there are four broad topic areas that include a wide range of suggested subtopics:
