The Medieval Academy Travel Grants
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 February.
(2) 1 November for meetings to be held between 1 March and 31 August.
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.
