GRANT: GAHTC Grants: Research-to-Teaching & Field Seminar Travel Grants

The Society of Architectural Historians has partnered with the Global Architectural History Teaching Collaborative (GAHTC) to offer Research-to-Teaching Grants and Field Seminar Travel Grants. These new grants are part of the GAHTC’s nearly $500,000 in funding to build new content for its free, digital platform of teaching materials. Learn more at
​There is no deadline for these grants. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis.
Research-to-Teaching Grants. In recognition of the high-level and innovative research presented at the SAH Annual Conference, the GAHTC is eager to receive contributions from scholars who are able to adapt and present that research in compelling lectures. It is expected that the research will enrich the GAHTC library and provide fellow instructors with content they find engaging, timely and inspirational to teach.
The GAHTC has partnered with the SAH Annual Conference for this grant opportunity in recognition of the diversity of scholarship presented at the conference. Such scholarship is essential to the continual growth of the GAHTC Library.
Submissions in any area of specialization focusing on global architecture and urbanism are welcome. Each grantee will receive $2,300 per lecture submitted to the GAHTC library.
To apply, please submit the abstract of your SAH Annual Conference presentation, accompanied by a narrative of how you will translate that presentation into a lecture or lectures. Please reference the grant proposal page for guidelines on how to prepare a proposal.
Submit your proposal to Eliana Hamdi Murchie at .
Field Seminar Travel Grants. The Field Seminar Travel Grant will fund the attendance of a GAHTC member to SAH’s Field Seminar. Applications will be evaluated based on the relevance of the seminar destination to the survey teaching needs of the applicant, and further, on how it may assist the applicant in developing their findings into teaching materials remitted to the GAHTC library.
The opportunity to join the SAH Field Seminar Program will help GAHTC members expand their research, gain unprecedented access to sites usually inaccessible to the general public, and to engage in an environment that fosters intellectual discussion. To ensure this opportunity for its members, the collaborative has established a $15,000 fund. Each grantee will receive $5,000 to fund travel and produce a lecture for the library. The GAHTC will fund three Field Seminar Travel grants.
For consideration, please submit a proposal that provides a brief introduction to the field site, an outline of the relevance of the SAH Field Seminar destination to the applicant’s survey teaching needs, as well as an analysis of how the proposed field visit may translate into a lecture for the GAHTC library. Please include and outline of the proposed lecture along with a short bio and CV.
