The Medieval Academy provides a limited number of travel
grants to help independent scholars (including those employed at non-academic
institutions with no travel funds) and currently unaffiliated faculty present
their work at professional meetings.
Awards to support travel in North America are $500; for overseas
travel the awards are $750.
(1) 1 May for meetings to be held between 1 September and 28
(2) 1 November for meetings to be held between 1 March and 31
Applications should consist of four copies of the following:
a one-page abstract of the paper to be presented; a one-page curriculum
vitae, including current employment status; a photocopy of the
call for papers issued by the meeting’s organizers; and the names,
phone numbers, and addresses (including electronic) of two references.
Please do not exceed the page limits.
Although time constraints may require an initial application
before a paper has been accepted, travel grants will not normally
be awarded without evidence that the paper actually will be given
(such as a photocopy of the relevant part of the program).
Major national and international meetings will be given priority.
Grants will be limited to one per applicant in a three-year period.
Applicants must hold the Ph.D. degree and must be current members
of the Medieval Academy.
