Grant of the Week: Parker-Schmitt Dissertation Award

Alana Venable | May 23, 2022

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring European History Section of the Southern Historical Association's biennial Parker-Schmitt Dissertation Award.


The European History Section of the Southern Historical Association is pleased to announce the biennial competition for the Parker-Schmitt Dissertation Award. Named for Harold Parker, long-time professor of French history at Duke University, and Hans Schmitt, who taught German history at several institutions before completing his career at the University of Virginia, the Award is given in even–numbered years to the best PhD dissertation in European history nominated by a faculty member at a Southern university (the term "Southern" should be broadly construed) or by a member of the European History Section.

Recommendations of eligible theses should be sent to the chair of the committee by August 1, 2022. Recommenders are also responsible for ensuring that each committee member receives the dissertation itself via email by that date.


The award of $250 will be presented at the EHS luncheon at the SHA meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, this November.

Eligible dissertations must have been defended between August 1, 2020 and July, 31 2022. Criteria for selection include quality and originality of research, new and stimulating interpretations and insights, and literary quality.

End: August 1, 2022
