The Alaska Historical Society offers two scholarship awards to attend its annual meeting and conference. One award is for a post-secondary student who is researching an Alaska history topic, and the other is for an emerging professional in a related field. Awards consist of reimbursement for documented travel expenses up to $1,000 plus a conference registration package.
Application process: Each applicant must submit: 1) letter with a statement of eligibility and an explanation of how attending the meeting will enhance your academic or professional development, 2) title and abstract of proposed presentation, and 3) a résumé. Applicants will be judged on the applicant’s achievement in Alaska history relative to current status and the likely benefit of the meeting to the applicant.
The application deadline is May 18. Electronic submission is preferred. Applications should be submitted to email@example.com, or via regular mail to: AHS Awards, P.O. Box 100299, Anchorage, AK 99510.
