ISS GRANTS & SCHOLARSHIPS
As one of the principal goals of the ISS is to encourage younger generations to experience the delights and enlightenment of reading and seeing Shaw’s works and participating in the discussion of them, the ISS offers a generous program of support in the form of scholarships, travel grants, and prizes, most of which are allied with particular events, such as symposia and conferences.
To contribute to the fund for grants and scholarships, include this in your membership application or renewal (see the membership form at http://www.shawsociety.org/2015-membership-form.htm. If you give a minimum of $500, the grant the ISS gives with that can carry your name, if you wish.
Plans for ISS events in 2015 are still in the formative stage, but the ISS will offer a limited number of travel grants for the following two events:
4.) TRAVEL GRANT APPLICATION FORM for the “Shaw in New York” Conference on May 16-17-18-19, 2015, at Fordham U., Lincoln Center Campus or the 12th Annual Shaw Symposium on July 24-26, 2015, at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.
A.) For the “Shaw in New York” conference, you are applying for just a Travel Grant, which you are asked to justify in your filling in of the form below.
B.) Use the same form for your application for an ISS Travel Grant for the 2015 Shaw Symposium at the Shaw Festival in Canada, July 24-26, 2015, which, if granted, may be combined with a Bryden Scholarship from the Shaw Festival that will provide free accommodation for three nights and free registration for the conference. The ISS may award Travel Grants that are not accompanied by Bryden Scholarships, which means that the winner of a grant without the Bryden would be responsible for arranging and paying for accommodations. The maximum amount for the Travel Grant is normally $500. Acceptance of this grant assumes that you will attend the entire conference and present a paper or appear on a panel as scheduled. For more details about the symposium, see http://www.shawsociety.org/SummerSymposium-2015.htm . Send questions to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
