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 2018 George E. Pozzetta Dissertation Award from the Immigration and Ethnic History Society.
The Immigration and Ethnic History Society announces competition for the 2018 George E. Pozzetta Dissertation Award. It invites applications from any PhD candidate who will have completed qualifying exams by 2017, and whose thesis focuses on American immigration, emigration, or ethnic history. The award provides two grants of $1000 each for expenses to be incurred in researching the dissertation.

Also included must be a proposed budget, a brief curriculum vitae, and a supporting letter from the major advisor. To be considered for the award, all applicants must submit their materials via email to all committee members by December 15th, 2017.
