The Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program provides support for high-caliber scholarship in the social sciences and humanities. The anticipated result of each fellowship is the publication of a book or major study. The work of the 2015 Andrew Carnegie Fellows provides new perspectives on topics such as policing and race, big data and privacy, the impact of an aging population, the safety of generic drugs, and how voter attitudes are formed.
Carnegie Corporation of New York has named 31 Andrew Carnegie Fellows as the inaugural class of a major annual fellowship program that will provide support for scholars in the social sciences and humanities. The Fellows will receive awards of up to $200,000 each, which will enable them to take sabbaticals in order to devote time to their research and writing.
