2012 EDIS Graduate Student Fellowship
Submitted by RMooney on September 26, 2012 - 8:22pm
The Emily Dickinson International Society (EDIS) announces a fellowship award of $1,000 in support of graduate student scholarship on Emily Dickinson. This year's fellowship is named in honor Karen Dandurand, a dedicated scholar and teacher of Emily Dickinson who lost her battle with cancer in fall 2011.
The award may be used to fund travel to collections or conferences, to support book purchases, or for other research expenses (such as reproduction costs) necessary to the project. Preference will be given to applicants enrolled in doctoral programs and engaged in the writing of dissertations or other major projects directed toward publication. Applicants should be aware that a dissertation project need not be focused solely on Dickinson; however, a substantial part of the work should significantly engage Dickinson’s work. To apply, please send a c.v., a project description, the names and contact information of two references, and a dissertation prospectus or other relevant writing sample of no more than 25 pages to Jed Deppman at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due by January 15, 2012. Letters of recommendation are not accepted as part of the application packet. Applications will be acknowledged upon receipt and applicants notified of final decisions by March 1.
