Treat-a-Scholar Program

The OAH Annual Meeting is filled with opportunities to network and meet peers. One of the most intimate ways to connect are via Annual Meeting add-ons, such as luncheons and tours. However, the cost of these add-ons can be an additional burden for graduate students, early career historians, and adjunct faculty. For this reason we developed the Treat-a-Scholar program. With the generous support of sponsors attendees from the above listed groups can sign up, free of charge, to any function in the add-ons section of registration. Simply email to add an event to your registration. Availability is limited and is first-come, first-served.

** Adjunct faculty is understood to be individuals who are solely employed teaching individual courses at universities and colleges and are not considered full-time employees by their institutions. Adjunct faculty may teach multiple courses that equal full-time employment but due to the nature of their contracts, are not eligible for benefits accorded full-time and/or permanent faculty and staff.

Each attendee is limited to two guest registrations. Guests receive a convention badge that allows them to attend sessions and receptions, and to enter the Exhibit Hall.
