IASIL is offering scholarships to enable PhD students to attend its annual conference to be held at the Université Charles de Gaulle – Lille 3, Lille, France, from July 14-18, 2014.
This year there are two awards: the annual IASIL scholarship and a special scholarship in memory of Professor Robert Welch (1947-2013), a distinguished past chair of the association.
The awards will be made in accordance with the international mission of IASIL to support, extend and develop research on Irish Literature and will be particularly alert to the appropriateness of the applicants’ proposed paper to the conference’s theme (“Embodying/Disembodying Ireland’) and the benefits that attendance at the conference will bring to the applicants’ research topic.
The scholarships will cover
— travel costs to a maximum indicated on the travel bands. It should be noted that it is the location of the applicant’s university that will determine the appropriate award. Award winners will need to present receipts for travel and will be reimbursed for those costs to the maximum given in the travel band document
— a contribution of € 300 towards accommodation.
— conference fees and conference dinner
N.B. Applicants should be members of IASIL. Award winners can only be confirmed if their papers are accepted by the conference organisers.
The final date for applications is 17th March, 2014.
