Travel Grants

Travel Grants

The Medieval Academy provides a limited number of travel grants to help Academy members who hold doctorates but are not in full-time faculty positions, or are adjuncts without access to institutional funding, attend conferences to present their work.

Awards to support travel in North America are $500; for overseas travel the awards are $750.

APPLICATION DEADLINES

(1) 1 May for meetings to be held between 1 September and 28 February.

(2) 1 November for meetings to be held between 1 March and 31 August.

Applications should consist of one copy 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.

Send applications to Travel Grant Competition at the address below.
