Deadline: December 1
The Society for Advancement of Scandinavian Study (SASS) announces The Birgit Baldwin Fellowship in Scandinavian Studies, a grant to encourage the research and writing of dissertations for the Ph.D. in fields concerned with Scandinavian (Nordic) literature or film that can be realized only by research in the archives and libraries of the Nordic countries, including Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. The stipend will be $25,000 payable in two installments for travel to and living expenses in the Nordic region during one academic year. The Birgit Baldwin fellow and an alternate will be appointed every year beginning in 2005. The application deadline is 1 December of the preceding year.
Applicants should submit a dissertation proposal that includes research plans and evidence of competency (including linguistic competency) to carry them out, supported by letters from two scholars. The successful applicant will demonstrate the significance of the subject, the need to work in Scandinavia (the Nordic region), and the feasibility of accomplishing the objectives of the research plans.
