Howell-Smith Fellowship

The J. Howell Smith Fellowship provides full financial support to anyone with a plan to attend a professional History conference. Travel expenses, meals, and registration costs will all be covered. For more information or to submit an application, please contact Dr. Mir Yarfitz (

These funds are available on a rolling deadline, which means you are more likely to be awarded funding in the fall semester rather than the spring. If your conference is in the spring, we recommend you apply before the end of the fall semester. You should plan to apply at least four weeks in advance of your intended conference.
