Grant of the Week: Peter Dobkin Hall History of Philanthropy Prize

Sadie Bergen | Mar 31, 2017

Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring the Peter Dobkin Hall History of Philanthropy Prize.
Peter Dobkin Hall was an active and long-time member of the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA), winner of the organization’s 2008 Award for Distinguished Achievement in Nonprofit and Voluntary Action Research, and one of the most influential historians of the nonprofit sector of the last half-century. This prize will honor Hall’s memory by celebrating the published book that has made the most significant scholarly contribution to our understanding of the history of philanthropy. For purposes of the prize, “philanthropy” will be defined in broad ARNOVA terms to include the history of nonprofit organizations, civil society, and philanthropy. 

Award recipient of the Peter Dobkin Hall Prize is required to attend the ARNOVA  Awards Luncheon on Friday, November 17, 2017 at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids, Michigan. They will also serve on a panel to present their award winning research as part of a mini-plenary on the same day.
