Grant of the Week: American Society for Legal History Cromwell Dissertation Prize
Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. We look for grants of potential interest to a wide range of scholars, but we also look for grants for more specific fields. This week, we are featuring an opportunity for recent PhD graduates doing work in American legal history.
The Cromwell Foundation has funded a dissertation prize of $5,000. The winning dissertation may focus on any area of American legal history, including constitutional and comparative studies; topics dealing with the colonial and early national periods will receive some preference. Anyone who received a PhD in 2014 will be eligible for this year’s prize. The Foundation awards the prize after a review of the recommendation of the Cromwell Prize Advisory Committee of the American Society for Legal History.
To be considered for this year’s prize, please send one hard copy of the dissertation and the curriculum vitae of its author to John D. Gordan, III, Chair of the Cromwell Prize Advisory Committee, and each member of the Cromwell Dissertation Prize Advisory Subcommittee with a postmark no later than May 30, 2015. The addresses of the subcommittee members can be found on the original grant listing on the AHA’s Calendar. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
