The MLA offers financial assistance to eligible non-tenure-track and unemployed members, regular and life members residing abroad, and graduate student members. The $300 grants partially reimburse expenses for travel to the MLA convention, which will be held in Chicago from 9 to 12 January 2014.

Financial assistance for travel to the convention is partially supported by member contributions to the Professional Education Assistance Funds and the Good Neighbor Fund. If you can, please make a donation to help those who need assistance; your contribution is tax-deductible.
