Summer Research and Writing Grants

In 2020, at the start of the pandemic, the ACHA reframed its annual graduate student research grants. We are inviting contingent faculty to apply for the award, in addition to our usual audience of graduate students. We have broadened its scope to and are encouraging the grant be used to fund research, travel, and/or writing.
 
Good luck!

About the Summer Research and Writing Grant

Because the coronavirus pandemic has made travel of any sort difficult and inadvisable, the ACHA has reframed its annual graduate student research grant. 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 research, travel, and/or writing.
