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. Applicants are not required to present papers.
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. From 2004 through 2015, the AAH has awarded a total of $12,475.00 to 48 candidates, about half of whom presented papers.
To apply for a grant for the 2016 meeting in Tacoma, please submit a letter of application, vita, and one letter of recommendation by January 31st, 2016 to:
Dr. Brian Messner
Lincoln Christian University
100 Campus View Drive
Lincoln, IL 62656
All applicants for the subvention must be members of the AAH at the time of their application and state in the letter
why they want to attend the meeting. 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.
