Presidents Message

Please Donate to our Research and Travel Program

 You have all recently received an appeal letter to donate to the AAHS Research and Travel Grants program.  I urge you to support this important program. The Society is able to promote student research, not only through the research grants themselves, but also through providing support in attending and presenting at regional and national conferences. The diversity of research being done by Society Grant funds is impressive. In 2016, for example, while much of the analysis being funded is technical in nature, it covers the spectrum in terms of what is being done. We awarded over $7,000 to 12 individuals from 7 institutions. Our goal for this year is $10,000. Please help us meet it by donating! You can use the button on the right side of this page to do so or mail in your check.
