Announcement: Strathy Student Conference Grants

Date: February 4, 2011 | Category: Strathy News

The Strathy Language Unit is now offering competitive conference travel grants for undergraduate and graduate students at Queen’s University presenting research on Canadian English.  Grants are available to students in any discipline whose work examines or highlights some aspect of the structure or usage of the English language in Canada.

The grants cover transportation, lodging, conference fees, and material costs (such as printing handouts or posters) up to a maximum of $500 for domestic travel and $750 for international.  There is no application deadline, and students can apply for funding at any point after submitting to a conference but before attending.  Awardees will be reimbursed for their expenses after the completion of travel and upon presentation of original receipts.  Funds will be distributed on a quarterly basis to ensure availability throughout the year.  The total amount awarded each year will vary. 

In accepting a grant, recipients agree to acknowledge the support of the Strathy Language Unit in their materials and to have their name and project title listed on the Strathy website.
