The AHA's Affiliated Societies offer dissertation and graduate student prizes in a wide range of temporal and thematic historic fields. To better serve the graduate students who may benefit from these prizes, we have decided to consolidate many of those prizes onto one easy-to-find page. Each prize has its own application process, deadline, and award timeline so follow the links to learn more about the awards that interest you. Be sure to check out what other awards an affiliate offers as these may include study and travel grants! Please note that the AHA does not have specific details about or control over these prizes and all questions and applications should be sent directly to the affiliated society. The Medieval Academy of America offers nine dissertation grants to help students with research costs. Presented by the Society of American Historians, the prize is awarded annually for the best-written doctoral dissertation on a significant subject in American history.
In order to ensure our programs can optimally focus on their doctoral students--to become, in short, more student centered--she has been making critical investments in the ways we support our students, both materially and intellectually. One area of urgent attention is the category of students who have found their ability to finish their degrees impeded by circumstances beyond their control. In raw numbers, that means well over students. President McInnis has asked us to address the costs to students in their delay in moving forward with their careers.
