The American Historical Association’s Grants to Sustain and Advance the Work of Historical Organizations provides funding ranging from $10,000 to $75,000 to support short-term projects that explore new ideas or build on experiments initiated during the pandemic. We encourage proposals for both ambitious new initiatives as well as smaller projects that address problems that have arisen because of the pandemic. Membership associations, site- or location-based institutions (including online entities), and history and humanities departments at historically Black and tribally controlled colleges and universities (HBCUs and TCCUs) are eligible to apply. Projects may begin as early as April 1, 2022, and may not exceed one year. Projects must be completed by July 31, 2023. Applications will be accepted until December 14.
The AHA will host a pre-application webinar on Friday, November 5 at 1 p.m. ET to provide an overview and answer questions about the application process. Register here. The webinar will be recorded and available on the AHA’s website following the live broadcast.
