Sarah Bell '12 Awarded SHSI Research Grant

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

Sarah Bell, a 2012 graduate of the Museum Studies program and current Ph.D. Candidate in History at the University of Kansas, was recently awarded a $1,000 research grant from the State Historical Society of Iowa. Her research is titled Voices for Change: Women and Chautauqua at the Turn of the Century.

The historical society awarded 13 grants to history scholars around the U.S. and in the United Kingdom. Funding supports research and interpretive writing related to the history of Iowa or Iowa and the Midwest, with a particular preference toward previously neglected topics or new approaches to, or interpretations of, previously treated topics.

Applications are judged on the basis of their potential for producing publishable work and recipients will produce an annotate manuscript targeted for The Annals of Iowa, SHSI's scholarly journal.
