Short-Term Grants for Research in Atlantic History, 2013-2014
The International Seminar on the History of the Atlantic World at Harvard University announces the availability of short-term grants to support archival research in Atlantic history, 1500-1825. The awards, up to a maximum of $2000, are designed to support archival research focused on the common, comparative, and interactive aspects of the lives of the peoples of the Atlantic world in the early modern period. Grants are primarily intended for travel to enable scholars to reach sources not otherwise accessible rather than to support research in more easily available archives.
The grants are open to both advanced doctoral and post-doctoral scholars, with the emphasis on individuals at the beginning of the academic career. The deadline for applications is April 30, 2013, for grants to be used from July 1, 2013, through June 30, 2014. Applicants will be notified of the results by mid May.
The Atlantic History Seminar, under the auspices of the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History, is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. For application information please see the Seminar’s Web site or contact:
