AHA members are eligible for four different research grants offered by the Association. All grants are offered annually and are intended to further research in progress. Preference is given to advanced doctoral students, non-tenured faculty, and unaffiliated scholars. They may be used for travel to a library or archive; microfilming, photography, or photocopying; borrowing or access fees; and similar research expenses. The grants are as follows:
- The Albert J. Beveridge Grant for Research in the Western Hemisphere is available to support research in the history of the Western hemisphere; individual grants do not exceed $1,000.
- The Michael Kraus Research Grant in colonial American history, with particular reference to the intercultural aspects of American and European relations, offers cash awards of up to $800.
- The Littleton-Griswold Grant offers up to $1,000 for research in U.S. legal history and the field of law and society.
- The Bernadotte Schmitt Grants support research in the history of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Individual grants will not exceed $1,000.
The deadline for all of these grants is February 15, 2008. To learn more about becoming a member of the AHA visit our membership page.
