Godfrey Kearns Bursary competition for MA students

The deadline is approaching for applications to the Godfrey Kearns Bursary for master's students.

We will make two awards of £250 to students enrolled on an MA course in the Division of English, American Studies and Creative Writing who are writing MA dissertations on an American Studies topic.

The money can be used for travel to conduct research in the UK or United States, to pay expenses connected with American Studies-related archival work, or for travel to a postgraduate workshop or event related to their dissertation topic. Applications should include two parts:

  • an overview of no more than 400 words explaining the project and the purpose for which the monies are sought;
  • a basic budget outlining the costs.

Students who receive the prize must use it by July 2018, and should submit a one-page blog report on completion.

Please email applications to Dr Eithne Quinn (eithne.quinn@manchester.ac.uk) by 5pm on 27 February 2018.
