BAAS welcomes proposals from Postgraduate and Early Career Researchers in any field of American studies for its new Public Engagement and Impact Award.
Recognizing the diversity of public engagement and impact projects by its Postgraduate and Early Career members, this award seeks to encourage and enhance good practice.
One award of up to £750 will be made available to a project the purpose of which is to either i) disseminate new research to non-academic audience or ii) work collaboratively with an external organization.
Please note that the award is not primarily intended to defray routine research costs such as archive trips or attendance at academic conferences. Awards may be used to cover the costs of meetings including organizing workshops or conferences designed to bring together project partners and to showcase the project.
This award is open to all Postgraduate and Early Career Researchers who are BAAS members at the time of application.
BAAS is committed to promoting best practice in matters of equality and diversity and applicants are expected to demonstrate similar consideration when submitting bids to this scheme.
The 2017 competition has closed, but we hope to offer this award again in 2018.
The winner of the 2017 award was Hannah-Rose Murray, of the University of Nottingham for her project, Dual Legacies: Samuel Morley and Josiah Henson’s History of Social Activism.
