SESAH appreciates donations of any amount that will support our annual programs, including the publication of our annual journal Arris, fellowships for SAH conference travel and graduate student research, as well as grants for graduate students and emerging professionals for travel to SESAH’s annual conference. In addition to the general fund, donations can be designated for specific uses, as shown below. 

SESAH is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, chartered in Arkansas and registered to do business in Tennessee, which makes all donations tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law. 

Fellowships Fund

This fund supports two annual fellowships: 

– The SAH Annual International Conference Fellowship supports a graduate student or emerging professional in architectural history or historic preservation to attend the conference of the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH).  

– The Graduate Student Research Fellowship provides assistance to a graduate student in architectural history or historic preservation for research-related expenses and travel. 

SESAH Conference Travel Grant Fund for Emerging Professionals

This fund supports the Emerging Professional Conference Travel Grant, which assists emerging preservation professionals to attend SESAH’s annual conference. This grant encourages non-academic professionals to join our scholarly and collegial community.

Gavin Townsend Memorial Fund

Established in 2018, this fund supports our SESAH Conference Travel Grants for Graduate Students, which assist graduate students presenting papers at SESAH’s annual conference. This fund was established in honor of Gavin Townsend (1956-2018), a longtime SESAH board member and beloved professor at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, who died in May 2018. To date, this fund has raised over $5,000.
