The Coordinating Council for Women in History CCWH Catherine Prelinger Award https://theccwh.org/ccwh-awards/catherine-prelinger-award/ is a scholarship of $20,000 which will be awarded to a scholar of excellence. This award is intended to enhance the work of a contemporary scholar whose academic path has not followed the traditional path of uninterrupted study. This award is intended to enhance the ability of the recipient to carry on these CCWH traditions through contributions to women in history, either through scholarly or professional activity. Eligible applicants must be members of CCWH and must hold either A.B.D. status or the Ph.D. at the time of application. They shall be actively engaged in scholarship that is historical in nature, although the degree may be in related fields. Applicants will show evidence of a nontraditional professional career and describe a project that will further enhance women’s roles in history. The Prelinger Committee encourages applications from independent and non-academic scholars. The deadline for the Prelinger award is May 15, 2021.
