We are pleased to announce the Dr. John S. and Dr. Betty J. Schuchman DEAF HISTORY AWARD.  This is an endowment fund that gives a cash award for excellence in deaf history research.

The new award recognizing significant scholarship on the history of deaf people was announced in April 2014 during Gallaudet University's symposium entitled Celebrating 150 Years of Visionary Leadership. Dr. John S. Schuchman is a Professor Emeritus of History at Gallaudet University, author of Hollywood Speaks: Deafness and the Film Entertainment Industry and co-author of Deaf People in Hitler's Europe. Dr. Schuchman and Dr. Betty J. Schuchman created the Schuchman Deaf History Award to encourage research on the lives and experiences of deaf people and their communities. The Schuchman Deaf History Award is given every five years and comes with a monetary prize and recipients are recognized in a public event and their names are added to a plaque placed in a prominent location at Gallaudet. Deaf History International received the first Schuchman Deaf History Award in recognition of their groundbreaking transnational work to foster and disseminate research.
