CONFERENCE GRANT APPLICATIONS
The Society regularly sponsors over a dozen events in a year, in fulfilment of its goal to promote research in medieval languages and literature. The Society welcomes applications to fund conferences from any Society members via its online system.
Please note that the Society's priorities in allocating funding are
* to provide conference sponsorship which facilitates access to conferences for graduates and early career academics
* to fund aspects of conference planning which encourage and support graduate and early career academic attendance and participation.
Please note that the Society *is unable* to support honoraria paid to tenured academics, to make direct grants to individuals wishing to attend conferences, or to consider applications not made via its online system.
There are two application types:
Small Grants (up to £500)
Applications for smaller grants (up to £500) are considered all year round. Applications should be submitted no less than two months before the planned event - and, ideally, before the Call for Papers has closed; in the case of successful applications, this will help the Society to publicise the event at an early stage. You can expect to be notified of a decision within three weeks of your application.
Large Grants (over £500)
Applications for larger grants (over £500) are considered thrice yearly, in the New Year, spring and autumn (please see the side-panel for the next application deadline). The planned event should be taking place no less than two months after the relevant application deadline - and at which time, ideally, the Call for Papers will not yet have closed; in the case of successful applications, this will help the Society to publicise the event at an early stage. You can expect to be notified of a decision within three weeks of the relevant application deadline.
