The Centre for Environmental History at Australia National University is hosting its 7th biennial Environmental History PhD Workshop from 24 – 28 May 2014 in Canberra. As part of NiCHE’s commitment to graduate student training and international collaboration, we are once again offering a $1500 travel grant for a Canadian PhD student to attend. The student should be at the writing stage of a dissertation in environmental history or historical geography; preference will be given to a student working on a topic that has a clear Australia, New Zealand, or British Commonwealth/Empire dimension. The student will afterward be expected to write a short report of the event for the NiCHE website.

If interested, please provide the following to amaceach@uwo.ca by 1 February 2014:

  • a max. 2-page CV,
  • a max. 2-page statement describing the subject of your doctoral research and how your work would benefit from attending the workshop,
  • documented support for your attendance from your supervisor (a simple email will do),
  • and, if applicable, a commitment of any matching support from your supervisor or department to attend.

Notification will be made by 21 February. If NiCHE and the workshop organizers do not deem any applicant as suitable, no travel grant will be awarded.
