Reeder-Davies Grants Program
Reeder-Davies Grant for Alaska History
The Reeder-Davies Grants Program encourages research and writing about the Cook Inlet area and Alaska. One grant has been created to honor the memory of Brian Davies and John Reeder, two long-time board members of the Cook Inlet Historical Society who passed away in 2012 and 2013.
The Reeder-Davies Grant for Alaska History supports in-depth research that makes a significant contribution to the study of the Cook Inlet region and Alaska history.
The Reeder-Davies Grant for Alaska History allows undergraduate and graduate students, teachers and professional staff members, faculty members, and independent researchers to travel to archives, libraries, museums, Native cultural centers, government agencies, or other institutions to conduct research in Alaska history. The repositories holding the original records relating to Alaska history can be located within Alaska, in the Lower 48 states, or in a foreign country.
Eligible applicants may be residents of Alaska, out-of-state applicants, or persons living outside of the United States who have an interest in Alaska history. Each grant is in the range of $400 - $1,000. These grants may be used for classroom-based projects and other research.
The Society hopes that this merit-based grant will broaden current knowledge of Cook Inlet history and cultures or Alaska history. Teachers and professional staff in accredited public high schools, private schools, and religious-based schools (Grades 9-12) offering the required state course in Alaska history and cultural studies are eligible to apply for funding to attend short courses, seminars, and workshops relating to Alaska history and cultural studies. The grant may be used to develop classroom-based projects to explore Cook Inlet history and engage both the Anchorage academic community and interested public.
Complete applications for this grant must be submitted during two application periods each calendar year:
- February 1 – April 30 (spring application period)
- August 1 – October 31 (fall application period)
