BAAS invites scholars in any field of American Studies to apply for funding to support the organisation and running of conferences, colloquia and/or conference-related activity taking place during the current year. (It is not meant to fund the applicant’s attendance at a conference). BAAS has access to these funds through the subscriptions of its members as well as particular grants-in-aid that come from sources such as the American Embassy.
The Conferences Sub-Committee will prioritise applications that will fund postgraduate or schools attendance and that will publicize BAAS, the Journal of American Studies, and U.S. Studies Online at the event.
Closing Deadlines: 1 April and 1 November each year. N.B. – for 2015 ONLY the Spring Deadline is 1 June 2015. You will be notified of the outcome of your application four weeks after the closing date.
Applications will be competitive. Applications should be sent to Sinéad Moynihan, Chair of the Conferences sub-committee at s.monynihan[at]exeter.ac.uk. The application can be downloaded here.
