The PAHA Awards Committee seeks nominations for awards and prizes to be granted by the Polish American Historical Association at its 75th Anniversary Meeting in Washington D.C. in January 2018. We ask all interested parties to send nominations until June 1, 2017, so a slate of candidates may be presented at the PAHA Board Meeting in Kraków in June 2017.

Self-nominations will be accepted. The nomination should consist of name of the candidate, his/her biography note and the reason that they deserve the specific award they are nominated for, as well as the contact information for the candidate (in case of awards being made).
