Travel Grants 2016

The Joseph Conrad Society is normally able to provide travel grants to participants presenting a paper and having no recourse to institutional funding.

The Juliet McLauchlan Travel Grant is expected mainly to aid attendance by those whose papers have been scheduled for presentation. Details of the 2016 award will be posted in the Spring.

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. Full details of the 2016 award, including the application form, addresses and contact information, will also be posted next year.

Both grants will be awarded on a basis of need.
