Becas de la EHA estadounidense

The submission portal for EHA grants and fellowships is now open. Please visit http://eh.net/eha/grants-and-fellowships/ for more information.

The Committee on Research in Economic History is pleased to announce several grant and fellowship opportunities for graduate students and Ph.D. researchers. The following programs are for individuals who have not received their Ph.D. degree.

1) Graduate Dissertation FellowshipsStudents with approved topics and making progress towards completion are eligible for Dissertation Fellowships.  Students at early stages of dissertation development are not eligible for fellowship support.  Funds awarded during this application cycle are intended to provide support during the 2020-21 academic year. Applicants must be members of the Association, and dissertation fellowships are not renewable.

There are three different types of dissertation fellowships, with names reflecting the source of funding for the fellowship.  An applicant files a single application to be considered for all three types and can receive at most one fellowship. The three types of awards are the following:

EHA Graduate Fellowships ($10,000).

Cambridge University Press Dissertation Fellowship ($10,000). This award is made possible through an endowment created through a partnership between Cambridge University Press and the Economic History association, signaling a commitment to the development of the future leaders of the field, whose research will direct the study of economic history throughout the world.

Sokoloff Fellowship ($15,000). Thanks to a generous gift from Ken Sokoloff’s estate and other individual contributions, this fellowship honors the major contributions of Kenneth Sokoloff to economic history, and in particular his care and concern for the many students he introduced to economic history.

Please direct any questions about these fellowships to Professor Tracy Dennison, Chair, Committee on Research in Economic History, at tkd@hss.caltech.edu.  Applicants are asked to submit a CV, a project description, and two letters of reference (one of which should be from the dissertation committee chair). It is the applicant’s responsibility to contact letter writers and provide them with the submission directions. Letters can be uploaded at http://eh.net/eha/reference-letter-upload/. Please note that where the application asks for a 5-page project description (including references cited), this is to be double spaced with at least one inch margins on all sides and font size no less than 11 point.

Deadline for Applications:  January 18, 2020. Awards announced by February 28, 2020.

2) Exploratory Travel and Data GrantsExploratory Travel and Data Grants are early stage grants for doctoral students writing a dissertation in economic history. They provide funding for specific research purposes (for example, visiting archives, data transcription, or purchase of microfilm or CD-ROMs) and, in most instances, will not exceed $2,500. They are nonrenewable, but recipients are eligible to apply subsequently for a Graduate Dissertation Fellowship (see above).

Please direct any questions about these fellowships to Professor Tracy Dennison, Chair, Committee on Research in Economic History, at tkd@hss.caltech.edu. Applicants must be current members of the Association. Please note that where the application asks for a 3-page project description, this is to be double spaced with at least one inch margins on all sides and font size no less than 11 point.  This includes references you cite. For the application to be complete your dissertation advisor should upload a reference letter to:http://eh.net/eha/reference-letter-upload/. It is the applicant’s responsibility to request the letter.

You file one application for the Pre-Dissertation Exploratory Grants.  Two of the grant recipients will receive the Cambridge University Press Pre-Dissertation Exploratory Grants which are funded by an endowment created by Cambridge University Press and the Economic History Association to demonstrate both organizations’ commitment to the development of the future leaders of the field, whose research will direct the study of economic history throughout the world.

Preference is given to recent Ph.D. recipients.  Please direct any questions about these grants to Professor Tracy Dennison, Chair, Committee on Research in Economic History, at tkd@hss.caltech.edu.
