The Association of Ancient Historians awards Grants-in-aid for the purposes of underwriting travel expenses of advanced graduate students and junior faculty who want to attend our annual meetings. It is our intention to encourage more members to sample the collegial atmosphere of our annual meetings and to encourage more colleagues to join what is truly a unique association of Ancient History professionals.
The funds supporting this program are the proceeds of generous donations from individual members of the AAH. The implementation of the subvention program and its continued success in attracting junior colleagues are testaments both to the spirit of the founders of the AAH and the unique vitality of our meetings
The Association of Ancient Historians considers applications for grants-in-aid for the purposes of underwriting travel expenses of graduate students and junior faculty who want to attend the annual meeting of our Association. Applicants are not required to present papers. From 2004 through 2013, the AAH awarded a total of $11,175.00 to 43 candidates, about half of whom presented papers.
We invite you to sample the atmosphere of our annual meeting and join this unique association of Ancient History professionals.
We do not stand on ceremony; we are founded on collegiality. We want you to know more about us.
Applications for the May meeting are generally accepted from December through February. Exact dates will be announced later this year.
All applicants for the subvention must be members of the AAH at the time of their application. Letters of recommendation should establish a lack of alternative funding. Graduate student applicants must be advanced and actively seeking a degree in Ancient History. The AAH welcomes all individuals to membership and attendance at AAH events.
