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 NCSA Emerging Scholars Award.
The Nineteenth Century Scholars Association (NCSA) is an interdisciplinary association interested in exploring all aspects of the long 19th century. They are pleased to announce the following award:
The 2018 Emerging Scholars Award: The work of emerging scholars represents the promise and long-term future of interdisciplinary scholarship in 19th century studies. In recognition of the
excellent publications of this constituency of emerging scholars, this award recognizes an outstanding article or essay published within six years of the author’s doctorate or other terminal professional degree. Entrants must have less than seven years of experience either in an academic career, or as a post-terminal-degree independent scholar or practicing professional. The winning article will be selected by a committee of 19th-century scholars representing diverse disciplines. The winner will receive $500 to be presented at the annual NCSA Conference in 2018. Applicants are encouraged to attend the conference at which the prize will be awarded.
Send a PDF of electronically published articles/essays to the committee chair, Professor Caroline McCracken-Flesher, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Address all questions to Dr. McCracken-Flesher at the same email address. Please note that applicants must verify date of actual publication for eligibility. Articles submitted to the NCSA Article Prize competition are ineligible for the Emerging Scholars Award; one entry per scholar is allowed annually.
