These grants provide modest grants to support research in the history of Europe, Africa, and Asia. The funds for this program come from the earnings of a bequest from Bernadotte E. Schmitt, president of the Association in 1960. Only members of the American Historical Association are eligible to apply. Individual grants will not exceed $1,000, and the money is intended to further research in progress and may be used for travel to a library or archive, for microfilms, photographs, or photocopying—a list of purposes that is meant to be merely illustrative, not exhaustive. Preference will be given to those with specific research needs, such as the completion of a project or completion of a discrete segment thereof. Preference will also be given to Ph.D. candidates and junior scholars. The deadline is usually in February. Mailed and faxed submissions are not accepted.
