Clinton Jackson and Evelyn Coley Research Grant Fund
To honor the memory of Judge Clinton Jackson Coley and his wife Evelyn Coley, the Alabama Historical Association offers every other year a graduate student grant. The $500 grant is open to any graduate student conducting research on an Alabama-related topic.
The next grant will be awarded in April 2015 at the annual meeting of the Alabama Historical Association.
Applications should include a statement of the student's intended plan of work, a letter of reference from the chairman of the department in which the student is enrolled, and/or a letter of reference from the student's major professor. Electronic submissions are welcome.
