Travel Grants 2014

The Joseph Conrad Society is normally able to provide travel grants to participants presenting a paper and having no recourse to institutional funding. The Gail Fraser Memorial Travel Grant is open to younger scholars and has no restrictions in that a travel grant from the Society may concurrently be held.

The Juliet McLauchlan Travel Grant is expected mainly to aid attendance by those whose papers have been scheduled for presentation. Grants will be awarded on a basis of need.
