 The Society for French Historical Studies and the Western Society for French History offer an annual award of $2,000 for research conducted outside North America on any aspect of the history of France.  This award is granted to an outstanding American or Canadian scholar who has received the doctorate in history in the five-year period prior to the award (since January 2012 for the 2017 award).  The award must be spent no more than one year after the fellowship is awarded.
The Society for French Historical Studies offers The Farrar Memorial Awards in honor of Marjorie M. Farrar and Lancelot L. Farrar.  Marjorie M. Farrar, esteemed historian of modern France, authored books on the political career of Alexandre Millerand and on the strategy, politics, and diplomacy of the French blockade, 1914-1918.  Lancelot L. Farrar, distinguished historian of modern Europe, published books on the foreign and domestic policies of Germany and other European nations during World War I.  The generous donations of the Farrars' family, friends, and colleagues make possible two awards of $5000 each for doctoral students in French history at North American universities to support work on outstanding dissertations projects in progress.  In selecting the winner of ONE of the TWO awards, the awards committee will give strong preference to studies that relate French history to that of another European country or part of the world.
