2023 EDIS Society Graduate Student Fellowship--Call for Submissions

2023 EDIS Society Graduate Student Fellowship

Call for Submissions

The EDIS announces a fellowship award of $2,000 in support of excellence in graduate student scholarship on Emily Dickinson. The project need not be devoted solely to Dickinson, but her work should be a substantial focus. The award may be used for any expense incurred to advance the project. Preference will be given to applicants in the dissertation stage or writing a work aimed at peer-reviewed digital or print publication. Graduate students from the United States as well as other countries are encouraged to apply; the application as well as the scholarly work must, however, be in English. To apply, please send a cv, a cover letter, a 600-800 word project description, a brief bibliography, and contact information for two references familiar with the work to Elizabeth Petrino at epetrino@fairfield.edu. Use the subject line “EDIS grad award.last name.” Please ensure that you receive confirmation of receipt. Applications are due by January 15, 2023. The Awards Committee will review the proposals; applicants will be notified of final decisions by February 15, 2023. The award recipient will be asked to submit a report about the work accomplished with the fellowship support within one year.
