The State Historical Society of Iowa (SHSI) announces a grant pro­gram for the 2016/2017 academic year. SHSI will award up to ten stipends of $1,000 each to support original research and interpre­tive writing re­lated to the history of Iowa or Iowa and the Midwest. Preference will be given to applicants proposing to pursue previ­ously ne­glected topics or new approaches to or inter­pretations of pre­viously treated topics. SHSI invites appli­cants from a variety of backgrounds, including aca­demic and public historians, graduate students, and indepen­dent re­searchers and writers. Applications will be judged on the basis of their potential for producing work appropriate for publi­cation in The Annals of Iowa. Grant recipients will be expected to produce an annotated manuscript targeted for The Annals of Iowa, SHSI’s schol­arly journal.


Applications for the 2016/2017 awards must be postmarked by April 15, 2016. Download application guidelines from our web site ( or request guidelines or further informa­tion from:
