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.
(1) 1 May for meetings to be held between 1 September and 15 February.
(2) 1 November for meetings to be held between 16 February and 31 August.
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.
1)A one-page abstract of the paper to be presented
2)A one-page CV
3)The call-for-papers issued by the meeting's organizers
4)Confirmation of the paper's acceptance (correspondence or the Programme)
Recommendation letters should be mailed to Executive Director Lisa Fagin Davis, Medieval Academy of America, 17 Dunster St., Suite 202, Cambridge, MA 02138 or submitted as an email attachment (PDF on letterhead with signature) sent to the Executive Director at LFD@TheMedievalAcademy.org.
