Call for Applications for the Dickinson Scholar Award

EDIS Scholar in Amherst, 2017

The Emily Dickinson International Society invites applications for the 2017 Dickinson Scholar Award, which supports new research on Dickinson. The project need not be devoted solely to Dickinson, but her work should be a substantial focus. The award of $2,000 may be used for any expense incurred to advance the project. Preference will be given to applicants with completed PhDs who are in the early stages of their careers. To apply for the award, please submit: a cv, a cover letter, a 600-800 word project proposal, a brief bibliography, and a preliminary budget to ecr@email.unc.edu. Deadline for applications is January 15, 2017. Applicants will be notified of final decisions by March 1.

Giving Tuesday

As you undoubtedly are aware, we have a day for giving thanks, and then a couple of days for getting deals, and now we have Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving back. Today, people and institutions around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. During this festive, busy holiday season, we ask that you consider giving to the Emily Dickinson International Society (EDIS). Your gift of any amount will help us continue support the study and appreciation of Emily Dickinson’s poetry and poetry in general. We are especially interested in raising funds for student travel to our conferences and meetings (our 2016 International Conference and Critical Institute will be held in Paris). With your support, we can better serve all of our members and programs. To contribute, please visit https://edis.press.jhu.edu/membership/contribute

Here’s wishing each and all the happiest of holiday seasons, and we thank you for your continued support!

In Possibility,
Martha Nell Smith
President, EDIS
