Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians that has been posted to our free Calendar. We look for grants of potential interest to a wide range of scholars, and this week we are featuring two opportunities with the Nineteenth Century Studies Association (NCSA).
NCSA 2016 Emerging Scholars Award
The NCSA is pleased to announce the 2016 Emerging Scholars Award. The work of emerging scholars represents the promise and long-term future of interdisciplinary scholarship in 19th-century studies. This award will be given to an outstanding article or essay published within five years of the author’s doctorate or other terminal degree. Entries can be from any discipline focusing on any aspect of the long 19th century (the French Revolution to World War I); they must be published in English or be accompanied by an English translation, and they must be by a single author. Submission of essays that are interdisciplinary is especially encouraged.
The winner will receive $500 to be presented at the annual NCSA Conference in Lincoln, Nebraska, April 16-18, 2016. Deadline for submission is July 1, 2015.
For more details on this award and directions for submission, see the announcement on our Calendar.
NCSA 2016 Article Prize
