GRANT COMPETITION
The John A. Adams ’71 Center for Military History & Strategic Analysis at the Virginia Military Institute will award a $3,000 grant to a graduate student in history or related field working on a dissertation in the area of Cold War history. The award promotes innovative scholarship on Cold War topics. The Adams Center invites proposals in all subject areas—including international security affairs, military strategy, leadership, and operations. All periods of Cold War history are welcome. This year, having recently celebrated the 70th anniversary of the formation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO, 1949-2019), the Adams Center is especially interested in dissertations concerning Cold War alliances. The prize is made possible through the generous support John A. Adams and George J. Collins Jr.

To be considered, graduate students must submit a brief proposal (prospectus) describing their doctoral research, a project timeline, and curriculum vitae with a list of references.
