Call for applications for ICHO fellowships

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 franziska.torma@rcc.lmu.de. Review of applications will occur on a rolling basis.
