The IRSCL Research Grant

Each grant will be a minimum of US $1,000, with the possibility of a higher amount, to be assessed on a biannual basis. For the 2013 IRSCL Congress, the grant has been increased to US $2,500. Applications are welcome from postgraduate students or early career researchers. It is necessary to be a member of the IRSCL to apply for the grant. Eligible activities include literary, historical, cultural, sociological, empirical and pedagogical research.

Applications should include a clear outline of aims, methodology, budget allocation, and expected outcomes. Applications are invited every two years.
