We accept applications on the understanding that awards will occur at the sole discretion of the Director, U.S. Army Military History Institute and that this decision is final.
Grants may be used as reimbursement for documented research expenses at the Institute (travel, lodging, meals, copying) up to the amount of the award. Applications must be postmarked by December 31 of each year. The number of awards and amount of each is decided during the annual review. Recent grants have generally ranged from $500 to $2500.
