ACH is proud to offer a number of travel bursaries (USD $320) for the inaugural ACH2019 conference and the New Scholars Seminar (see details about the NSS here). The bursaries help defray costs of travel for presenters at the conference, including airfare, lodging, meals, poster printing, and other such expenses. Additionally, we offer five bursaries covering the cost of registration ($70) for local students.
Presenters of all kinds of submissions are eligible. We are particularly interested in offering support to students, early career scholars, and those in contingent positions. We will give preference to participants whose work speaks to the shared principles of the conference, as articulated in the CFP, by focusing on anti-racist, queer, postcolonial and decolonial, indigenous, black studies, cultural and critical ethnic studies, and intersectional feminist interventions in digital studies.
To apply, please fill out this form by May 10, 2019. Award winners will be notified at the end of May. You will be asked to upload a letter including the following information:
- Your reasons for applying for the Travel Bursary, other sources of funding (un)available, and how your work engages with the principles of the conference. No more than 350 words.
- If you are applying to participate in the New Scholars Seminar as well, please explain your interest in the seminar in an additional 200 words.
All applications will be reviewed by the ACH2019 Bursaries Committee (Élika Ortega, Micki Kaufman, Scott Weingart, Thomas Padilla, Roopika Risam, Sylvia Fernández, and Emily Esten).
Bursary winners will be presented at the ACH Annual General Meeting where they will receive a certificate. Stipends will be sent following the conference upon receipt of documentation. Bursary winners will be asked to write a short reflection on their conference experience for the ACH website.
Questions should be sent to email@example.com
