Samuel P. Hays research fellowship
ASEH created this fellowship to recognize the contributions of Samuel P. Hays, the inaugural recipient of the society's Distinguished Scholar Award, and to advance the field of environmental history, broadly conceived. The fellowship provides a single payment of $1,000 to help fund travel to and use of an archive or manuscript repository. It is open to practicing historians (either academic, public, or independent). Graduate students are ineligible. A Ph.D. is not required.
Submissions will be accepted between June 1 and October 1, 2015, and the recipient will be selected and notified in December 2015 for funding in January 2016.
To apply, please submit the following items:
- A 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.
The application period begins June 1. All items for the Samuel P. Hays Research Fellowship must be submitted electronically by October 1, 2015. We will provide additional details on June 1, 2015.
