Anne Firor Scott Award 2020
The Anne Firor Scott Award is given to help students (undergraduates planning to take the History Senior Honors Seminar and graduates working on seminar projects or dissertations) engaged in research in women's history to spend time in archives and resource centers where they can use original historical materials. The application consists of the following: 1) a proposal of 2-3 pages addressed to the Anne Scott Award Committee, 2) current curriculum vitae or resume, (3) the completed application form. The proposal should describe the student's overall project or the specific resource materials for study, as well as the reasons undertaking the project; the status of work already in process; a budget for requested funds; and explanation of other funds available to the student.
Applications were originally due on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. As part of Duke's Coronavirus Response, the deadline for applications has been extended, for now, to Friday, May 15. The department expects to make a decision by the end of April whether we can still go ahead with the award for this year or not.
