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, 2024

To apply, you must:

  1. Complete the submission form below;
  2. Have your letter(s) of recommendation submitted via this dedicated recommendation-submission page. Do not send recommendations yourself; they must be submitted directly by the letter writer.
