  1. Just got my rejection.
  2. Sorry to hear that! I know how disappointing that is. I hope something else comes through for you!
  3. Yeah, it seems like folks on Twitter have heard back about other ACLS fellowships.
  4. Thank you! Yes, you're correct that I applied for the dissertation fellowship, not the pre-doc. Good luck! I hope y'all hear back soon.
  5. Just got my rejection. Email to review results arrived at 9:16 am on Monday, 3/22.
  6. Maybe not, but it's still possible since there are a couple hours left before the end of the work day!
  7. My "Review Result" tab has also disappeared ๐Ÿคจ
  8. Mine now says "The review is not over." I did not notice if this was there before. I wonder if this was added in response to people reaching out to inquire about the status of their applications.
  9. Panic! at the Fellowship Forum
  10. I ended up attending an MA program within an hour of my family because the other programs to which I was accepted didn't offer sufficient funding. It worked out for the best on a personal level, because that meant I got to spend a lot of time with my grandfather before his sudden passing over the summer right before my program started. I 100% would have gone to one of the other programs had they offered me full funding, but looking back I'm glad I was closer to home. If I had moved 5-8 hours away from home that summer, I probably would have regretted not being around when my grandfather passe
  11. I'm not sure about any of the other ACLS fellowships, but provisional acceptances for the Mellon/ACLS Dissertation fellowship went out yesterday afternoon (around 4pm EST on Monday 3/15) according to folks on the Wiki site. They speculate that alternates will be notified today (3/16). So, I suppose the best I can hope for now is alternate (still a long shot...) https://academicjobs.wikia.org/wiki/Dissertation_Fellowships_2021-2022#ACLS_.2F_Mellon_Dissertation_Completion_Fellowships
  12. I hope so! I'm not too optimistic about my chances, but it will be nice to at least know either way. Good luck!
  13. I'm sure this is different for every program, but my MA Grad Director told me that my clear interest in the program (follow-up emails, visiting campus, etc.) helped me in the admissions process. IMO it can't hurt to reach out and reaffirm that they are your top choice program and you're still interested. Good luck!
  14. Hmm, since that's the "Science Review Panel," maybe that's only for certain fellowships (like the predoc)? I'm in the humanities and applied for the dissertation fellowship. But that's a good sign that they're probably all convening around this time, as presumably there would be different panels for each type of fellowship.
  15. It looks like they received word on March 15th in 2019! ...but on the 28th in 2018 ๐Ÿ˜…
