AHA Career Contacts
AHA Career Contacts is a new service that matches history PhDs employed beyond the professoriate with graduate students and recent PhDs who are interested in broadening their career horizons. It will help graduate students and recent PhDs appreciate and articulate how their training as historians qualifies them for careers other than as members of college and university faculty.
Disability Mentorship Program
The AHA has established a mentoring program in which graduate students doing work in history of disability or related historical fields will be matched with established faculty mentors. History graduate students with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply.
Volunteer instructor mentors will be matched with students who are either pursuing a degree in the same subfield of history or who have the same disability, if they have disclosed that information.
