ASLH Graduate Student Funding Initiative

[Lauren Benton, President of the American Society for Legal History, has announced the following initiative.  Please note that eligibility is limited only to graduate students who are ASLH members.  DRE]

In recognition of the challenges to graduate students who are conducting legal history research when travel and funding are restricted and when many archives closed, the ASLH is offering a limited number of small grants to help support remote research.

The application is open to graduate students at any stage who are ASLH members. Each successful applicant will receive $1,000, to be used to obtain digital materials or to cover other expenses incurred while conducting summer research. The deadline is June 15, 2020. Apply here.

Please help ASLH expand this initiative. Anonymous donors have pledged a total of $3,000 to fund three graduate student grants. You can make a gift of any size to help us do more. To give, choose “Small Grants for Digital Legal History” from the dropdown menu on our "Donate" page.

[And, while we're at it: note that the June 1 deadline for various ASLH prizes and awards will soon be upon us.]
