The John A. Adams ’71 Center for Military History & Strategic Analysis at the Virginia Military Institute will award a $3,000 grant to a graduate student in history or related field working on a dissertation in the area of Cold War history. The award promotes innovative scholarship on Cold War topics. The Adams Center invites proposal in all subject areas—including international security affairs, military strategy, leadership, and operations. All periods of Cold War history are welcome. This year, the grant selection committee is especially interested in projects exploring George C. Marshall’s role in the making of early Cold War foreign and national security policy. The prize is made possible through the generous support John A. Adams and George J. Collins Jr.

 

To be considered, graduate students must submit a brief proposal (prospectus) describing their doctoral research, a project timeline, and curriculum vitae with a list of references. Applications should be delivered, electronically, to the Adams Center at adamscenter@vmi.edu by 4:00 p.m. Eastern, Friday, April 5, 2019.
