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 2017 Andrew Carnegie Fellows will provide new perspectives on topics such as countering extremist narratives on social media, violence against women in politics, opportunity and education, and immigration enforcement and the future of U.S. democracy.
In keeping with its mission to advance and disseminate knowledge and understanding, Carnegie Corporation of New York today announced 35 recipients of the 2017 Andrew Carnegie fellowships, with awards totaling $7 million. Each fellow will receive up to $200,000 toward the funding of significant research and writing in the social sciences and humanities—the most generous stipend of its kind.
