Jeffrey Grey Memorial Travel Grant

In honor of the late Dr. Jeffrey Grey, the Society for Military History is pleased to award the Jeffrey Grey Memorial Travel Grant. This grant will be awarded to an outstanding graduate student who is enrolled in a graduate program located outside of North America. Funds are intended to defray costs associated with presenting a paper or roundtable at the annual meeting of the Society for Military History. Applicants must indicate that they do not currently reside in North America.

The award will not exceed $3,000 and will be based on a reasonable estimate of the cost of travel, accommodation, and registration.

Only students whose proposal for a paper or roundtable has been formally accepted for inclusion in the program are eligible for this award. However, students are welcome to submit an award application before they are notified of their acceptance for the conference. Applications will be evaluated based on the quality and originality of the proposed work and its likelihood to contribute to the development of the field of military history.

Applicants should submit a brief cover letter, curriculum vitae, detailed budget, and a copy of their paper or roundtable proposal as a single document. A letter of recommendation from the student’s primary academic advisor should be sent separately.

Eligible students may also apply for the Russell F. Weigley Graduate Student Travel Grant. Applicants will be considered for both awards, but may only receive one in a given year.

Application material should be sent electronically to Holly Mayer ( The application deadline is November 30, 2023. Awards will be announced by early February 2024. Awardees will be honored at the Society’s awards dinner and will receive a complimentary ticket to that event.
