The OAH Distinguished Lectureship Program connects student leaders and campus event organizers with engaging guest speakers who specialize in American history. Our historians have been hosted by numerous student-led groups including graduate student associations, honor societies, history clubs, and multicultural student centers. Our roster includes Pulitzer and Bancroft Prize winners as well as outstanding teachers whose expertise has been recognized by their universities.

Lecture fees start at $1,000, payable to the OAH, plus travel expenses, reimbursable directly to the speaker. We can work with student groups to minimize costs.
