John H. O'Neill Bursaries
The John H. O'Neill Bursaries are awards of up to $300 to graduate students to assist them with the cost of travel to the Annual Meeting. In 2002 the Society voted to name these bursaries in honor of John H. O'Neill of the English department of Hamilton College, who has served as editor of the NEASECS Newsletter since 1989.
Up to six awards per year may be made. The chairs of the Annual Meeting decide to whom the awards are made.
To apply for an award, write a letter in which you confirm your student status, describe your participation in the NEASECS 2010 Buffalo conference (paper title, roundtable topic, etc.), and itemize the travel expenses you will incur in attending the meeting, as well as other financial support you will receive or have applied for. Please note that the awards may be used for travel but not for lodging or registration fees. Applications for the bursaries must be received by 15 August 2010, and notification of awards will be made by 15 September. Send the letter to Conference Chair Lisa Berglund, firstname.lastname@example.org; it will be forwarded to the awards committee.
