The National WWII Museum and The Society for Military History invite applications to participate in "The Summer Seminar in Military History" from 11 June - 30 June 2023. This three-week, in-residence experience at The National WWII Museum in New Orleans is primarily intended for faculty and advanced graduate students who wish to enhance their ability to study and to teach US and global military history. The program consists of a series of content and pedagogical seminars led by expert faculty and guest lecturers, as well as a public history day at the Museum and a battlefield staff ride. Lodging, meals and a stipend are provided.


Applicants will be selected based upon their potential contributions to the field of military history and upon the impact of the program on their future teaching and research. Recent PhDs, advanced graduate students who have completed all requirements for their doctorate other than submission of the dissertation (ABD), and senior faculty members interested in working in military history but without a strong background in the field are eligible to apply. A selection committee will consider each applicant's packet on its own merits.

Deadline for applications is 15 February 2023 with selections announced no later than 15 March 2023.


Interested candidates should submit:
