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 history, and strategic analysis. All periods of Cold War history are welcome. This year, the Adams Center is especially interested in projects concerning race and ethnicity in Cold War armed forces. 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. Applications should be delivered, electronically, to the Adams Center at firstname.lastname@example.org by 4:00 p.m. Eastern, Friday, April 2, 2021. Direct questions to Adams Center director Bradley Lynn Coleman.
