2018 SAH/Mellon Author Awards

The Society of Architectural Historians is now accepting applications for the 2018 SAH/Mellon Author Awards. Funded by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and administered by SAH, the award is designed to provide financial relief to scholars who are publishing their first monograph on the history of the built environment. The purpose of the award is to help defray the high costs of image licensing, reproductions and creation of original drawings and maps for monographs on the history of the built environment. 

The application deadline is May 31, 2018. Successful applicants will be first-time book authors who are under contract with a publisher for a manuscript on the history of the built environment.


  • The author must be a current member of SAH. 
  • The author will have received a PhD within the past six years (January 2012 – May 31, 2018) and must submit proof and date of PhD and current professional standing.
  • Authors must be under contract with a commercial or nonprofit publisher; self-published books are not eligible.
  • Books covering all periods and areas in the history of architecture, landscape architecture, urbanism, and related subjects are eligible. Publications in art history and visual studies are not eligible and should be submitted to the Millard Meiss Publication Fund administered by College Art Association (CAA). Excavation or other technical reports, articles, previously published works (including collections of previously published essays), or congress proceedings are not eligible.
  • Awards are open to authors of all nations; however, applications must be submitted in English.
  • A project that has been rejected for an SAH/Mellon Author Awards grant may not be resubmitted.

The Social Science Research Council is pleased to invite preliminary applications for its expanded and enhanced Transregional Research Junior Scholar Fellowship, funded with generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Following on four successful grants cycles, through which more than sixty-five individual fellowships totaling nearly 2.5 million USD have been awarded, the SSRC is continuing its transregional grants program, offering a 2018 Junior Scholar grants competition and awarding approximately fifteen grants of up to $45,000 to researchers in any world region. These fellowships help junior scholars (those at the postdoctoral stage, up to five years out of the PhD) complete first books and/or undertake second projects.

  • Afro-Asian Connections

  • Religious Networks
  • Migration/Refugees
  • Resources & Archives

This does not preclude proposals on other topics.

Invitational priorities for the 2018 Global Summer Semester Residencies include:

  • Movements of Knowledge
