Student Awards

 Chad Smith Student Travel Grants are awarded to assist students in funding travel to its annual meeting to deliver a paper at the meeting. The award is named in honor of Philip Chadwick Foster Smith, maritime museum curator, maritime historian, and an early member of NASOH.


Students, in your paper submission, please indicate that you are interested in the student conference grant and award opportunities. Upon a paper's acceptance to the annual conference program, students will be contacted directly regarding Chad Smith travel grants and Clark Renyolds student paper awards.


Clark G. Reynolds Student Paper Award is provided each year to the author of the best paper by a graduate student delivered at the society's annual conference. Named in honor of Clark G. Reynolds (1939-2005)—naval historian, museum curator, and the first executive officer of NASOH—the prize will consist of assistance in publishing the essay in The Northern Mariner(the journal co-sponsored by NASOH and the Canadian Nautical Research Society), a membership in NASOH, a handsome plaque and the author's choice of $500 worth of books published by the University Press of Florida.
