John Leyerle-CARA Prize for Dissertation Research – Medieval Academy
Deadline: January 31
In recognition of John Leyerle’s outstanding contributions and continuous service to the Committee on Centers and Regional Associations (CARA), to the Medieval Academy, and to the general conduct of medieval studies in North America, CARA has established an annual prize in the amount of $1,000 to support the doctoral research of a Medieval Academy member who needs to consult materials available in Toronto collections. These include the University of Toronto’s Robarts Library, the collections of the Dictionary of Old English and the Records of Early English Drama projects, and the library of the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies. The annual deadline for applications is 31 January for travel in the period between 1 May and 30 April of the following year.
Graduate students of the University of Toronto currently in residence are not eligible. The selection committee will be composed of the Chair of CARA and medievalists on the University of Toronto faculty. Applications must include three items: 1) a proposal of not more than three pages outlining the research project, including a statement that specifically addresses the pertinence of material in Toronto collections to the dissertation research; 2) a brief curriculum vitae; and 3) a letter of support from the dissertation director or major professor.
