Call for Grant Applications: Agricultural History Society 

The Agricultural History Society offers a grant program for members to advance the society’s mission “to encourage and promote scholarship in the history of agriculture and rural life.” This investment in the membership and the field of agricultural and rural history is the fruit of the Centennial Campaign, known as Seed Money, that marked the 100th anniversary of the AHS and concluded at the end of 2019.

The AHS will award one grant of $1,000 USD per year in each of the following career categories:

  • Graduate Student (at time of application)

  • Early Career (examples, but not limited to Post-docs and Assistant Professors)

  • Senior Career (examples, but not limited to Associate and Full Professors)

  • Independent Scholars and Contingent Faculty

  • Public History (examples, but not limited to librarians and public historians; an individual or team may present a proposal for the development of an online or physical exhibit, digitizing collections relevant to agricultural and rural history (published/unpublished), or other public-facing activity consistent with the promotion of “scholarship in the history of agriculture and rural life.”)

Applications will be adjudicated by a committee consisting of the Executive Committee (excluding officers) and any members they may see fit to include. Applications are due September 15 and award announcements will be made by December 15 of the same year. 

Application and eligibility information is available on the Agricultural History Society's website.
