Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring the American Journalism Historians Association (AJHA) Margaret A. Blanchard Doctoral Dissertation Prize. Given for the first time in 1997, the prize is awarded annually for the best doctoral dissertation dealing with mass communication history. An honorarium of $500 accompanies the prize, and a $200 honorarium is awarded to each honorable mention.
Eligible works shall include both quantitative and qualitative historical dissertations, written in English, which have been completed between January 1, 2016, and December 31, 2016. For the purposes of this award, a “completed” work is defined as one which has not only been submitted and defended but also revised and filed in final form at the applicable doctoral-degree-granting university by December 31, 2016.
Nominations, along with all the supporting materials, should be sent to AJHAdissertationprize@gmail.com.
