The Literary Encyclopedia Research Travel Awards 2017

The Literary Encyclopedia Scholarship Fund has been established through the donation of royalties by contributors and editors to the Encyclopedia.

In 2017 the Literary Encyclopedia Scholarship Fund will award two or three (depending on the number and strength of proposals received) travel bursaries worth £500 each to assist emerging scholars in defraying the costs of archival research on a literary or related matter. Conference attendance will not be covered.

The research travel must be completed before September 30th 2017 and recipients will be expected to provide formal reports on their work by October 31st 2017.
