Samuel and Marion Merrill Graduate Student Travel GrantsThe Organization of American Historians is pleased to announce the inauguration of the Samuel and Marion Merrill Graduate Student Travel Grants. These grants, supported by a bequest from the Merrill Trust, will help sponsor the travel-related costs of graduate students who are confirmed as participants on the OAH conference program and who incur expenses traveling to the annual meeting. Five awards of $500 each will be awarded each year. Graduate students who are Ph.D. candidates and who are presenting a paper or serving as a commentator on a session or panel are eligible to apply. Priority will be given to dissertation-stage doctoral candidates with decreasing priority given to students based on the year of matriculation in their respective Ph.D. programs. Please email (to firstname.lastname@example.org) your paper title or panel title, with an abstract and a CV (indicating your anticipated year of completion of the Ph.D.) to the Merrill Travel Grant Selection Committee c/o of the OAH. The first travel grants will be awarded for the 2013 annual meeting in San Francisco.
Deadline extended to January 18, 2012.
