SAH Membership Grants provide emerging scholars with a one-year digital SAH Individual membership to bridge the gap between the Society's subsidized student memberships and the full-cost SAH memberships. These awards are intended for emerging scholars, regardless of age or employment status, who are new to the field of architectural history or its related disciplines.
These grants are funded by the Society of Architectural Historians' Scott Opler Endowment for New Scholars.
SAH will award 25 Membership Grants for 2023. The award consists of a one-year digital SAH Individual membership. SAH will recognize the recipients at the SAH 2023 Annual International Conference
in Montréal and in the SAH Newsletter.
Criteria for Application
These grants are intended to open membership in SAH to emerging scholars who are engaged in the study of architectural history and its related disciplines.
An emerging scholar for these purposes is defined as a person, regardless of age or employment status, who is new to the field of architectural history or its related disciplines and has received a terminal master's degree or PhD within the past five years (January 1, 2017–July 31, 2022).
Emerging scholars who are adjuncts or unemployed are encouraged to apply. The applicant may be either a new or renewing member of SAH. The intention of the award is to act as a bridge between SAH's current reduced-rate student memberships, which are subsidized by SAH, and the full cost of annual membership in SAH.
To apply, you will need to provide a current CV (2 pages max) and a brief statement (100–300 words) explaining how the grant will help further your professional interests. The application deadline is September 30, 2022
