History of Science Fellowship from the American Geophysical Union

The American Geophysical Union invites applications for a $5000 fellowship in the history of science to a doctoral student completing a dissertation in the history of the geophysical sciences, broadly construed. Doctoral students in environmental history whose research touches on, for example, water, land, or the atmosphere fit into this category. The goal of the fellowship is to assist doctoral students conducting research in topics related to the history of geophysics with the cost of travel to obtain archival/research materials needed to complete the dissertation. The fellowship is open to all doctoral students who have passed their qualifying exams (i.e., they are ABD) and are enrolled in a research institution in the United States. Applications are due by 28 September 2015.

NEH Public Scholar Program

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has announced a new grant opportunity, the Public Scholar Program, intended to support well-researched books in the humanities that have been conceived and written to reach a broad readership. Books supported through the Public Scholar Program might present a narrative history, tell the stories of important individuals, analyze significant texts, provide a synthesis of ideas, revive interest in a neglected subject, or examine the latest thinking on a topic. Most importantly, they should present significant humanities topics in a way that is accessible to general readers.

The Public Scholar Program is open to both independent scholars and individuals affiliated with scholarly institutions. It offers a stipend of $4,200 per month for a period of six to twelve months. The maximum stipend is $50,400 for a twelve-month period. Applicants must have previously published a book or monograph with a university or commercial press, or articles and essays that reach a wide readership.

Application guidelines and a list of F.A.Q.’s for the Public Scholar Program are available on the NEH’s website at http://www.neh.gov/grants/research/public-scholar-program. The application deadline for the first cycle is March 3, 2015. Recipients may begin the term of the grant as early as October 1, 2015 or as late as September 1, 2016. The official press release for the new program is available here: http://www.neh.gov/news/press-release/2014-12-01
