Jill Roe Early Career Researcher AHA Conference Scholarship Scheme: Applications Open

The Australian Historical Association has announced a new conference prize, the Jill Roe Early Career Researcher AHA Conference Scholarship. Funding for this scheme is made possible by a generous bequest from Professor Emerita Jill Roe (1940–2017), an eminent and much-loved Australian historian who made a very significant contribution to the writing, teaching and public communication of history in Australia and abroad.

The scheme supports ten Early Career Research historians to attend and present at the AHA annual conference. The scholarship, valued at $1000 per applicant, provides financial assistance for ECR applicants with little or no institutional support. The money is to be used towards assisting with registration costs, travel and accommodation. Five scholarships each will be available for the 2019 and 2020 conferences.  Applications close 11 March 2019.
