Alabama’s most illuminating and engaging university and independent scholars educate and entertain as part of AHA’s Road Scholars Speakers Bureau.
An organization may book an initial speaker in a calendar year for a nominal fee. There is only a $50.00 booking fee for the first speaker request. For subsequent requests (within the same program year) the organization is responsible for the full costs of travel (mileage of $0.54/mile) and honorarium ($175.00). These funds will be used to offset program expenses. In the event that the program is canceled, a refund will be issued upon receipt of written request by the organization. The fees should be made payable to “Alabama Humanities Alliance” and mailed to Road Scholars Speakers Bureau, Alabama Humanities Alliance, 1100 Ireland Way, Suite #202, Birmingham, AL 35205. The contribution may also be invoiced upon request.
–If your organization plans a business meeting at the same time, we expect that you schedule the Road Scholar presentation first and inform the speaker at the time of your request.
–For in-school presentations, please reserve a minimum of one hour for the speaker’s presentation and up to two hours for a teacher in-service.
–With the exception of teacher in-services, all Road Scholars programs must be open to and free of charge to the general public. School programs aimed primarily at students must be made available to school faculty and administrators, as well as students’ parents or other adult family.
Speakers are available for the following groups: libraries, civic groups, historical societies, for-profit organizations, nonprofit organizations, and public or private secondary schools (for SUPER Teacher In-Service Professional Development).

AHA funds and conducts programs that encourage dialogue on a variety of humanities topics from diverse points of view. The views and opinions expressed in Road Scholars programs do not necessarily represent those of AHA or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
