Before applying for AAR nomination, please read the Whiting Public Engagement Program guidelines (PDF), which provide a description of the program, eligibility requirements, and the application process if you are nominated by the AAR. Your project must be primarily designed to engage one or more specific publics beyond the academy.
Nominees must be early-career, having received their doctorate between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2020. Focus is given to the following disciplines: history; the study of literature, visual art, music, and other arts; philosophy; and area studies combining these fields, like classics and African-American studies.
The AAR period for accepting nomination applications is closed.
Nominees will have approximately two weeks to submit a more developed application on the Whiting Foundation's website. Therefore, it is recommended in the interim between applying for nomination and learning of the committee’s decision, you give ample thought to the substance of what you would include in your Whiting proposal, if nominated.
