The Literary Encyclopedia Research Travel Awards 2019

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

In 2019 the Literary Encyclopedia Scholarship Fund will again award between 3 and 5 (depending on the number and strength of proposals received) travel bursaries worth between £500 and £750 each to assist emerging scholars in defraying the costs of archival research on a literary or related matter. Conference attendance will not be covered.

Applicants must be either contributors to The Literary Encyclopedia or early-career researchers in an institution which subscribes to The Literary Encyclopedia, i.e. they should be in process of undertaking a doctorate at the time of submission or within 10 years of completion.

The research travel must be completed before February 28th 2020 and recipients will be expected to provide formal reports on their work by April 30th 2020.

Applicants should please download and complete the application form attached HERE, and email it to The Managing Editor no later than 15 December 2018. We will announce decisions by the end of February 2019.
