The support and promotion of research by younger scholars is among the most important priorities of the Social Science History Association. This year, twenty graduate students who are presenting research papers at the Toronto meetings have been selected to receive an SSHA/Tilly Travel Award to partially defray their travel costs. Selections were based on a number of factors, including the strength of the proposal. The selection process was extremely competitive, and there were many more deserving papers than grants available.
Thanks to everyone who confirmed their eligibility for an award, and congratulations to the recipients.
