Summer Research and Writing Grants

Summer Research & Writing submissions

Because the pandemic has complicated travel, the ACHA has reframed its annual graduate student research grants. 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 fund research, travel, and/or writing.

Submission deadline: March 1, 2023

To apply, you must:

  1. Complete the submission form below;
  2. Have a letter of recommendation sent to Charles Strauss, ACHA Executive Secretary/Treasurer. The letter must be sent by e-mail from the writer directly to Dr. Strauss at [email protected].

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.
