Call for Applications: AHAA CAA Graduate Student and Professional Travel Grants 

The Association of Historians of American Art (AHAA) offers two grants of $500 each to defray College Art Association conference expenses, including transportation, housing, and registration fees, for presenting members. The first grant is for an ABD graduate student in American Art history who is currently enrolled in a graduate program and will travel to CAA's annual conference to appear on the meeting program. The second grant is to support a contingent faculty member or museum staff person whose work engages with the art of the United States, does not have access to travel funds from their institution of employment, and will travel to CAA's annual conference to appear on the meeting program. 

Applications for the 2018 Travel Grants are due January 1, 2018 and must include a short cv and letter of interest. The letter should indicate which award is being applied for - Professional or Graduate Student - and must include the applicant's paper and session title as they appear on the CAA program. For the Professional award, applicants should also address their institutional affiliation. The two winners of the AHAA Travel Grant must be members of AHAA at the time of application. All qualified candidates will be entered into a lottery and the winners selected at random. Applicants will be notified via email by January 15, 2018. Address letters of application to Naomi Slipp, AHAA Secretary, secretary@ahaaonline.org.
