The International Commission of the History of Oceanography (ICHO) invites applications for fellowship support from scholars studying the history of the marine sciences broadly conceived.
ICHO is a global body devoted to linking scholars, writers, and teachers interested in the history of the marine sciences, broadly defined. We are a commission of the International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology IUHPST/DHST.
Funds can be used to support travel for archival research or conference participation, though other travel in support of ocean-centric scholarship will be considered. Applications are welcome from grad students, early career researchers, contingent scholars, and independent scholars. Applicants should submit a cover letter describing the proposed research or presentation and budget justifying the amount requested (up to $500) along with a 2-page c.v. and the names of two colleagues whom we could contact as references, all put together as a single pdf document. Applications are welcome on a rolling basis. Funds must be used within 12 months of grant.
Once travel is complete, fellowship recipients will be expected to contribute a conference report, archive review, or research overview, which will be published to the ICHO blog.
Potential grant applicants can contact Franziska Torma with questions. Send applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applications will occur on a rolling basis.
