George E. Pozzetta Dissertation Award

The IEHS presents two awards of $1,000 each to help graduate students with their dissertations on American immigration, emigration, or ethnic history, broadly defined. These awards are intended for students in the process of researching and writing their dissertations, and not for students completing and defending in 2023. For the 2023 award, the committee invites applications from any Ph.D. candidate who will have completed qualifying exams by 2022.

Applicants will submit the following materials to pozzetta_award@iehs.org, which will reach all committee members:

  1. A 1500-word descriptive proposal in English discussing the significance of the work, the methodology, sources, and collections to be consulted.
  2. A proposed budget.
  3. A brief curriculum vitae.

In addition, applicants will arrange for their major advisor to submit a supporting letter to pozzetta_award@iehs.org

Submission deadline: December 31, 2022.

Committee Members:
Jana Lipman (Chair), Katherine Carper, Hardeep Dhillon
