ASAL is providing up to nine (9) bursaries to support current honours and PhD students undertaking projects in Australian literary studies.
Each bursary is worth $750 and is intended to support the successful applicants’ accommodation in and travel to Hobart. In addition, successful applicants will have their conference registration waived.
- Provide a cover letter, a description of their current project, and a short rationale to explain how attendance at the conference will contribute to their work
- Indicate the stage of their project (e.g. for PhD students your year of candidature), their institution, ASAL membership status, and opportunities for institutional support
- Provide a letter recommendation from their current supervisor
- Send their application to Dr Robert Clarke at (ASAL2022@utas.edu.au) by 5pm 29 April 2022 with the subject line “ASAL2022 Honours/PhD Bursary Application”
Successful applicants will not be expected to present on their work, although they are free to apply to do so.
