  • an untenured faculty member at an Ohio college or university;
  • a recipient of a Ph.D. in history within the past six years; and
  • a member of the Ohio Academy of History.

To apply, please submit:

  • a one-page curriculum vita;
  • a one-page budget with justification for how funds will be used;
  • a three-page explanation of the project’s objectives, sources and methods, significance, and timetable, as well as its contribution to the larger project;
