Awards & Grants

Awards and Grants

Through our numerous awards, grants, and fellowship programs, the Association recognizes and supports a wide variety of notable historical work. We offer annual prizes honoring exceptional books, distinguished teaching and mentoring in the classroom, public history, digital projects, and other historical work. Over the years, our grants and fellowships have supported the research of hundreds of historians on a range of topics and fields. The work produced by winners of AHA awards, grants, and fellowships is among the best of the historical discipline.

Upcoming Deadlines

Each year, the American Historical Association awards several research grants and fellowships with the aim of advancing the study and exploration of history in a diverse number of subject areas.

The American Historical Association is pleased to announce the establishment of the Eugenia M. Palmegiano Prize in the History of Journalism, which will be awarded to the best book in each calendar year on any aspect of the history of journalism, concerning any area of the world, and any period. Books that deal with journalism in relation to other forms of mass communication are eligible for consideration. The inaugural prize will be awarded at the AHA’s annual meeting in Washington, DC, in January 2018.
