The Hal Rothman Research Fellowship was created to recognize graduate student achievements in environmental history research in honor of Hal Rothman, recipient of ASEH's Distinguished Service award in 2006 and editor of Environmental History for many years. The fellowship provides a single payment of $1,000 for Ph.D. graduate student research and travel in the field of environmental history, without geographical restriction. The funds must be used to support archival research and travel during 2016.

Students enrolled in any Ph.D. program worldwide are eligible to apply.

Applications will be accepted from June 1 through November 16, 2015, and the recipient will be selected and notified in January 2016 for funding in 2016.


To apply, please submit the following three items:

  • Two-page statement (500 words) explaining your project and how you intend to use the research funds.
  • A c.v. no more than two pages in length.
  • A letter of recommendation from your graduate advisor


The application period begins June 1. All items for the Hal Rothman Research Fellowship must be submitted electronically to director@aseh.net by November 16, 2015.
