The MLA offers $400 grants to help cover expenses for travel to the MLA convention, which will be held in New York from 4 to 7 January 2018. Non-tenure-track and unemployed members, as well as members living abroad who were members during the previous year may apply for financial assistance. Graduate students who join the MLA by 30 November are also eligible but must be members before applying for travel grants. For more information and to apply online, visit the MLA Web site. The deadline for applications is 1 December 2017. If you have questions, please contact Annie Reiser at email@example.com.
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.
