The MLA offers $400 grants to help cover expenses for travel to the MLA convention, which will be held in Philadelphia from 5 to 8 January 2017. Non-tenure-track and unemployed members, as well as members living abroad, may apply for financial assistance. Graduate students who join by 30 November as 2016 members are also eligible. For more information and to apply online, visit the MLA Web site. The deadline for applications is 1 December 2016. If you have questions, please contact Annie Reiser at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Travel grants are supported by contributions to the Professional Education Assistance Fund and the Good Neighbor Fund. Please consider making a donation to help those who need assistance; your contribution is tax-deductible.
