Summer Research and 
Writing Grants

Summer Research and Writing Grants

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.
 
Good luck!
 
– Charles Strauss, Ph.D., Secretary-Treasurer, ACHA
