ASEH offers a variety of benefits to environmental scholars, including annual awards for the best book, article, and dissertation in environmental history, as well as distinguished scholar and service awards and public outreach awards. We organize annual conferences that bring together historians, geographers, scientists, and other scholars - and we award annual travel grants to fund participation in those meetings. We established two ASEH research fellowships, and we have partnered with the Newberry Library to offer a third fellowship for research at that repository. Our quarterly journal, Environmental History (published by Oxford University Press), is described in the "Publications" section of this website, along with our quarterly newsletter.
