Grant of the Week: 2019 Ristow Prize
Every week, Perspectives Daily 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 Ristow Prize for a student essay in the history of cartography.
Students of the history of cartography are invited to submit papers for the 2019 Ristow Prize competition. Undergraduate, graduate, and first-year postdoctoral students of any nationality are eligible to compete.
