MHRA Conference Grant Fund – Applications Invited

MHRA Conference Grant Fund

In 2016, the Modern Humanities Research Association intends to make up to ten grants of up to £1,500 each to support conferences or colloquia within the field of medieval and modern European languages and literatures (including English) held in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland and organised by academics based at UK or Irish institutions.

There will be two application rounds in the calendar year 2016, with up to five grants awarded in each round; the schedules are set out below. The awards will not be made to individuals to attend conferences, but to the organizers of conferences to provide assistance with organizational support and/or the travel and subsistence costs of certain participants, including postgraduate students.
