Each year, the American Historical Association awards several research grants with the aim of advancing the study and exploration of history in a diverse number of subject areas. All grants are offered annually and are intended to further research in progress. Grants may be used for travel to a library or archive; microfilming, photography, or photocopying; borrowing or access fees; and similar research expenses—a list of purposes that is meant to be merely illustrative, not exhaustive (other expenses, such as child care, can be included). The deadline for research grant applications is February 15.
Eligibility: Only AHA members are eligible to apply for AHA research
grants. Preference will be given to advanced doctoral students,
nontenured faculty, and unaffiliated scholars and to those with specific
research needs such as the completion of a project or discrete segment
thereof. Please note: Within a five-year period, no individual is
eligible to receive more than a combined total of $1,500 from all AHA
