Note on Summer Shaw Symposiums & Bryden 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.

Arrangements with the Shaw Festival have been made to award two to five ISS Travel Grants each year to complement Bryden Scholarships (which provide free accommodations for three nights & free registration) for “emerging scholars” to attend and deliver a paper at the Annual Summer Shaw Symposium at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the Lake Ontario, usually scheduled in late July. The ISS may also award Travel Grants that are not accompanied by Bryden Scholarships, which means that the winner of a grant would be responsible for arranging and paying for accommodations.
