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. Text follows. Thanks! 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. -- Julie R.
