BAAS Postgraduate Short Term Travel Awards


This programme contributes considerably to fostering talent among the American Studies community in the UK. The maximum of each grant will be &!L1000. Although there is no specific time limit for the duration of the awards, and it is recognized that awards under the scheme may need to be supplemented, it is not intended that they should be used to supplement or extend much longer-term awards. The duration of the award would typically expect to be twelve weeks. Applications are invited from persons normally resident in the UK, and from scholars currently working at, or registered as postgraduates at, UK universities and institutions of higher education. Preference will be given to those who have had no previous opportunities for research-related visits to the USA, and to young scholars, including postgraduate students. BAAS particularly welcomes applications from postgraduates needing to visit the USA for research purposes.
