  • 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.
