I am very pleased to announce that the NYU Department of History will once again be offering the Paul H. Mattingly Awards, which are designed to support research and professional development for M.A. students in the Archives/Public History (APH) Program. The awards honor Professor Paul H. Mattingly, who shaped and directed the public history program until his retirement in 2007. We will be granting several awards of $500 each this spring. Eligible projects include the following
activities, in priority order: 1) Presentations that have been accepted at professional conferences; 2) Research projects that are intended to result in conference papers, published works, or other professional presentations 3) Attendance at professional conferences. We will also provide special
consideration for applicants who have good projects but have not received any awards in past semesters.

All current students in the APH program are invited to submit proposals. Each proposal should include a brief description (1-2 pages) of the project, a proposed budget, an updated vitae, and any relevant supporting documentation (e.g., correspondence indicating that your presentation has been accepted at a conference). The deadline for submitting applications is March 22, and you may e-mail proposals directly to me at: Upon completion of your project, you
