Resources for Graduate Students

Graduate Students have long been an essential part of the Association's membership, and currently comprise almost 15 percent of our membership. The Association provides subsidized membership to graduate students as well as research grants to support their work. The AHA also offers discounted membership to early career professionals for the first three years after leaving the student membership category. This page provides links to the most popular resources the Association has prepared or found for graduate students at every stage in their studies and for early career professionals.

The permanent Graduate and Early Career Committee provides a voice within the Association for graduate students and historians early in their careers, and serves as a venue to discuss issues of concern and interest to students and early career professionals.

The AHA's Advisory Committee on Disability is establishing a mentoring program in which graduate students doing work in disability or related historical fields will be mates with established faculty mentors. Click here to apply to be a mentor or mentee.
