The HOTCUS Awards Programme offers three major forms of financial awards and prizes designed to recognize and support excellence in twentieth-century US history:

  • The Article Prize, which recognizes the best article on a twentieth-century US history topic published in a peer-reviewed scholarly journal during the previous calendar year.
  • The Postgraduate and Early Career Travel Awards, which provide funding for research trips to the US and elsewhere.
  • The Postgraduate Paper Prize, which recognizes the best paper given each year at the HOTCUS annual conference by a postgraduate student.
  • In addition, to help offset the difficulties posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are running a Mini Grant scheme to fund research expenses such as digitisation or digital subscriptions.
