Melville Society Travel Grants
We are happy to announce new travel grants for conference participants with limited funds!
We will award at least four travel grants to help defray travel costs, lodging, and other expenses for conference participants with limited travel funding available, in order to enable them to present their work at our twelfth international conference at in New York. Grant recipients will receive $300 stipends and have their conference registration fees waived.
These awards have been designed to support contingent faculty, graduate students with limited access to travel funding, scholars who are not otherwise able to afford international travel, or others for whom travel to the conference would present significant financial hardship. We will evaluate applications by considering both need and the quality of your paper proposal, with priority given to early-career scholars and people who would most benefit from participation in the Melville Society at this point in your professional lives. You are welcome to apply as soon as your conference proposal has been formally accepted.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to the fund to ensure its ongoing availability, please visit our Fundly page.
