The American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) is pleased to offer four scholarships for individuals to attend an AASLH onsite workshop in 2019. Onsite workshops bring participants from diverse institutions together at historic sites across the country for intensive sessions of hands-on learning and network-building centered around a particular topic. Whether it’s developing exhibits, caring for collections, or managing projects, onsite workshops create a supportive space for discussing common issues, trying experimental solutions, and connecting with others who share the same challenges in the field.

The deadline to apply is March 1, 2019.

The following scholarships are available: 

  • Diversity Workshop Fellowship: Recipients must be paid employees of history organizations and represent a racial or ethnic minority group in the U.S. Fellowship recipients must write one short essay on their workshop experience for publication on the AASLH blog, and are responsible for their own transportation, lodging, and meals. Two scholarships are awarded annually.

 

  • New Professional Workshop Scholarship: Recipients must be paid employees of history organizations and have worked in the field for three years or less, upon applying. Scholarship recipients must write one short essay on their workshop experience for publication on the AASLH blog, and are responsible for their own transportation, lodging, and meals. Two scholarships are awarded annually.
