Applicants must be current PhD students in good standing in the Department of History at Columbia University.
Grantees must be available to attend and participate in the fourth annual HIA conference, to be held January 19-20, 2017.

The History in Action Initiative is pleased to announce the History in Action Project Award (HAPA) for Spring / Summer 2016, which is part of the AHA-Mellon Career Diversity Initiative at Columbia University. The HAPA enables financial assistance for History graduate students to initiate or sustain a project that contributes directly to the mission of public history – meshing academic research and public outreach – and to create valuable relationships between the Department of History and communities elsewhere.
HIA seeks to provide students with the resources to execute ever-more elaborate and extensive projects. With this goal in mind, HAPA 2.0 offers a larger award (up to $3,000) to be used over a seven-month period.
