IAAS Postgraduate BAAS Conference Bursary

From 2012, as part of a reciprocal arrangement with the British Association for American Studies (BAAS), the IAAS is introducing a new scheme for two awards to be made annually to two postgraduate members of the IAAS to travel to BAAS events: one award to attend and present at the BAAS postgraduate symposium (November), and the second to attend and present at the BAAS conference (April).

Each bursary will be to the value of £250.

Applications are invited from postgraduate and early career scholars (those in the first three years after the successful completion of the Ph.D.) normally resident in Ireland or Northern Ireland, and currently working at universities and institutions of higher education. All applicants MUST be IAAS members. Preference may be given to those who have had no previous opportunities for attendance at BAAS events.

Upon completion of their trip, successful recipients will submit a brief report on their experience, their conference presentation etc., for publication on the IAAS website.
