Are you perhaps traveling from the US to Wales for Methods IX this summer?
The American Council of Learned Societies (to which ADS belongs) may have
some money for you, if you act fast! The following message just arrived from
ACLS. - Allan Metcalf
We've have fewer requests for applications in the Travel Grant Program this
year than at this time in years past. If you have the capacity to reach
your members quickly, could you remind them about the program? The
deadline for ACLS to mail applications potential applicants is January 29.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS FROM INDIVIDUAL SCHOLARS
AMERICAN COUNCIL OF LEARNED SOCIETIES
GRANT PROGRAM FOR TRAVEL
TO INTERNATIONAL MEETINGS ABROAD
Deadline: February 1, 1996
The ACLS, in cooperation with its constituent societies, announces a
program of travel grants, awarded on a competitive basis, to enable
scholars in all fields of the humanities and humanities-related social
sciences to participate in international meetings held outside the United
States and its dependencies. Priority will be given to well-planned,
broadly international meetings and infrequently-held international
congresses. This program is funded by the Gladys Krieble Delmas
Foundation. Approximately 170 awards of $500 each (regardless of
destination) will be made to individuals to offset necessary expenses such
as air travel to and from the U.S. The postmark deadline for applications
is February 1, 1996, for travel to international meetings occurring between
June 1, 1996 and May 31, 1997. Announcement of awards will be made by the
third week of April, 1996.
Eligibility: Applicants must hold the Ph.D. or the terminal degree in
their field and must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S.
Scholars of all ranks affiliated with institutions, as well as independent
scholars at all stages of the career, are eligible to apply. Only persons
who will read papers or have a major, official role in the meeting are
eligible for an award. Membership in an ACLS constituent society has no
bearing on eligibility.
To request application forms, interested scholars should fax the ACLS
Fellowship Office, 228 E. 45th Street, New York, NY 10017-3398, fax: (212)
949-8058, and give the following information: (1) The official name,
dates, place, and sponsorship of the meeting, (2) applicant's highest
academic degree and proposed role in the meeting, and address to which
application should be sent.
Only applications from individuals on their own behalf will be accepted.
Conference planning committees or sponsoring organizations may not apply.
