Some time ago, the then Honest History Association agreed to donate $800 to the Australian Historical Association. The money came from royalties from The Honest History Book and a similar donation went to Professional Historians Australia. Background.
The AHA has announced that the inaugural scholarship has gone to Dr Alison Bedford of Queensland. The money will assist Dr Bedford to attend this year’s AHA Conference in Toowoomba next month.
Dr Bedford tweeted this yesterday: ‘A huge thank you to
@AustHistAssoc and @honesthistory1 for awarding me a Secondary Teacher Scholarship to make it easier to attend this year’s AHA Conference. So many of the papers are relevant to the new Qld curriculum. I look forward to sharing the learning with my colleagues!’
Congratulations to Dr Bedford and thanks to the AHA for facilitating.
