and Writing Grants

Graduate Student Travel Grant Submissions

Because the coronavirus pandemic has made travel of any sort difficult and inadvisable, the ACHA has reframed its annual graduate student research grant for 2020. This year, we are inviting contingent faculty to apply for the award, in addition to our usual audience of graduate students. This award is typically used to fund travel, but this year we are encouraging the grant be used to support writing. 

Any ACHA Student Member enrolled in a graduate program of study, or any ACHA member who holds contingent faculty status is eligible to apply. Full information about the grant is available here.

Submission deadline: July 1, 2020

To apply, you must:

  1. Complete the submission form below;
  2. Have a letter of recommendation from your dissertation director (graduate students) or a senior member of your department (contingent faculty) sent to Charles Strauss, ACHA Executive Secretary/Treasurer. The letter must be sent by e-mail from the writer directly to Dr. Strauss at cstrauss@achahistory.org.

Point of Contact

Please have all letters of recommendation sent to Dr. Charles Strauss. Any questions about the grant may also be addressed to him.
