Griffith Award

The Griffith Award supports student travel to the National Council on Public History’s annual conference. It is open to second-year MA students who have a GPA of 3.5 or better and who have demonstrated their interest in becoming active in the profession.   Students should submit a resume and a one-page proposal stating their interest in attending the conference and how it will enhance their development as a professional. Students who are giving papers or who are otherwise participating in the conference will be given preference. In these cases, the committee recommends that students also apply for Mellon Fund money.

Applications are due to Prof. Kerr by February 15, 2016.
