American Council of Learned Societies
Fellowships and Grants
http://www.acls.org/programs/overview/
ACLS continues to be the leading private institution supporting scholars in the humanities and related social sciences at the doctoral and postdoctoral levels. In 2010, the Council gave over $15 million in fellowship stipends and other awards to more than 380 scholars in the United States and abroad. For the purpose of these competitions, the humanities and related social sciences include but are not limited to American studies; anthropology; archaeology; art and architectural history; classics; economics; film; geography; history; languages and literatures; legal studies; linguistics; musicology; philosophy; political science; psychology (excluding clinical or counseling psychology); religious studies; rhetoric, communication, and media studies; sociology; and theater, dance, and performance studies. Proposals in the social science fields listed above are eligible only if they employ predominantly humanistic approaches (e.g., economic history, law and literature, political philosophy, history of psychology). Proposals in interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary studies are welcome, as are proposals focused on any geographic region or on any cultural or linguistic group.

American Philosophical Society
Research Grants
http://www.amphilsoc.org/grants/
The APS has assisted thousands of scholars in the past and encourages all eligible current candidates to apply for our grants and fellowships. We are accepting applications across seven programs from predoctoral and postdoctoral applicants in a wide range of fields in the humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences.
Since 1933 the American Philosophical Society has awarded research grants to more than 15,000 scholars. We maintain seven grant or fellowship programs in a wide range of fields. Our Franklin, Lewis and Clark, Lewis and Clark Astrobiology, Library Fellowship, and Phillips programs award small grants ($1,000 to $6,000) for modest research purposes. Our Daland and Sabbatical Fellowship programs award much larger amounts ($30,000 to $40,000) in highly selective competitions. Awards are made for non-commercial research only. The Society makes no grants for academic study or classroom presentation, for travel to conferences, for non-scholarly projects, for assistance with translation, or for the preparation of materials for use by students. The Society does not pay overhead or indirect costs to any institution or costs of publication.

The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity
Prize in Ethics
http://www.eliewieselfoundation.org/prizeinethics.aspx
Deadline : December 5
Whatever the answer to essential questions of society and individual human beings may be, education is surely its major component. But what would education be without its ethical dimension? Many of us believe them to be inseparable. That is why this Prize in Ethics Essay Contest was established in 1989 by our Foundation. Thousands of students from hundreds of colleges and universities across the nation have participated. Through their writing, they explored their concerns and beliefs, their fears and their hopes. Provides a limited number of prizes to full-time undergraduate juniors and seniors at accredited four-year colleges and universities during the fall semester for winning essays on ethics.

MSU Scholarships
https://msu.academicworks.com/
Michigan State University has hundreds of scholarship opportunities available. Opportunities can be a combination of general scholarships (open to all students) and departmental scholarships (restricted to students within a specific major or field of study). Scholarships may be recommended to you at different times throughout the year as applications become available, so we suggest visiting MSU Scholarships often. Please keep in mind this section lists scholarships available regardless if you are eligible or not. Please note that some scholarships utilize an "Auto-Match" feature which will not require you to apply directly for the scholarship to be considered eligible. These scholarships will be indicated by the word "None" in the Action column. For scholarships for which you need to apply, please make a note of the deadline, as late submissions will not be accepted. Admitted students who have paid their deposit and currently enrolled students: Sign in using your MSU NetID and password to begin the scholarship application process. Once logged in, the system will automatically direct you to required applications.

FastWeb
http://www.fastweb.com/.
If you have access to the world wide web and are willing to fill in the online forms, this service promises a free customized list of financial aid sources. FastWeb is actually a searchable database of more than 400,000 private sector scholarships, fellowships, grants, and loans from more than 3,000 sources for all levels of higher education. First-time visitors have to register (first and last name and a user ID), then complete a profile, including background and fields of study. Registrants then receive a list of all currently relevant funding sources. The registration information is stored and can be used on subsequent visits. The entire sign-up process, and delivery of available funding sources, can be a bit tedious: about five to twenty minutes, depending on the connection speed. Approximately 500 new scholarships are added to the database daily, so registrants can stay current.
