This Communication Project Fund will be used to assist history students and historians who are precariously employed with projects/events that will enhance the digital scholarly communication of history in Canada.
The applicant must be a CHA member, enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program in history or related program or have completed a history or related degree. Projects such as blogs, websites, social network accounts, videos, podcasts, guides, etc., must provide a direct benefit to the scholarly dissemination of history in Canada and beyond to be considered. Priority will be given to those projects/events that have the potential to have the greatest impact. Funds will be attributed on a one per year basis; multi‐year funding is not available. The funding can be allocated to develop already existing projects although priority will be given to new ones. Funds must be used within the year in which the financial support is granted.
Those who obtain funding will be required to submit a brief report of activities made possible by the CHA Fund by December 31, 2020.
Applicants must include their contact information, a short curriculum vitae – 250 words or less, a detailed budget for the project, together with an implementation schedule as well as a list of contributors, if any. See attached form.
The committee consists of the CHA Treasurer, the CHA Council member responsible for outreach, as well as an appointed member by the CHA Executive. The committee will review applications and determine the projects/events that best meet the program criteria.
Administration of the Fund
