The Nineteenth Century Studies Association announces the establishment of a Student Travel Grant of $500 to support the presentation of a paper [sole-] authored by a student and accepted for a session at the 2020 annual meeting of the society. The following eligibility criteria apply:

1) the paper proposal has been accepted, and the paper will be presented by the author at the conference
2) the paper is authored by the student presenting and is not co-authored
3) the paper is unpublished and has not been presented at another conference
4) the student is enrolled full-time at an accredited college or university
5) the student is traveling more than 250 miles in order to attend the conference
6) the student registers for the conference and participates fully in its activities
7) the travel grant decision is based on review of the completed paper, not an abstract

Students agree that they will not submit a proposal to participate in the conference pending receipt of a grant. There may be several student presenters competing for limited travel support [one grant per year is anticipated]. Authors of all proposals, at the time the proposal is submitted, agree to attend and present the paper if the proposal is accepted, regardless of whether or not a travel grant is later awarded. Students with accepted proposals who are interested in applying for a travel grant should submit their completed paper to the conference program chair by December 1st. Final decision regarding the travel grant will be made by the conference committee and announced December 15th. The award check will be presented at the conference, and the travel grant recipient will be recognized at the Business meeting and in conference literature.

To apply for the Student Travel Grant, please fill out the Travel Grant Cover Sheet and email it (with your completed conference paper) to ncsa2020@gmail.comApplication Deadline: December 1.
