The National Collaborative for Women’s History Sites (NCWHS) seeks applications from students, independent scholars and academic historians for the Peg Strobel Travel Grant. A $1500 travel stipend will be awarded to a student/scholar of women’s/public history who works and studies the preservation, interpretation, and promotion of sites and locales that record women’s participation in American life.

To apply, submit a statement (1200-1500 words) describing how attending the Berkshire conference will be useful to your study of/interest in women’s and public history. Include a brief (one paragraph) biographical statement.
Recipient is expected to submit a brief article after the conference describing the value of the conference to their historical interest which will be published in the NCWHS newsletter and on the NCWHS website.
