In academic year 2011 – 2012 the Polish Studies Center is offering two grants-in-aid, one student award and one faculty award, to support travel for activities related to scholarship in Polish Studies. Each grant provides up to $500 in support of travel to a conference to make a presentation in the field of Polish Studies. The grant may also be used towards the cost of other research-related travel. Note that each award may be split among two proposals. The award may be for travel already completed as well future travel.
A selection committee appointed by the Director of Polish Studies will read all applications.
Applicants should submit the following to the Polish Studies Center:
- A current c.v.
- An abstract of your conference paper, or a 300-word statement explaining the nature and purpose of your travel.
- If you are attending a conference, a copy of the acceptance letter or invitation letter.
- Itemized budget of expected expenditures.
The award will be processed after travel is completed. Recipients will be informed about the necessary procedures for reimbursement.
Complete submissions should be received at the Polish Studies Center by Thursday, October 20, 2011.
