Several modest bursaries of $US200.00 are available for graduate students whose paper has been accepted for the conference, based on financial need. If you wish to apply for a bursary, please submit the request with your abstract. The request should consist of a paragraph stating where you will be traveling from and how much support they have from other sources. You will be informed of whether you have been awarded a bursary by the end of April. The bursary will be sent to you after the conference, after receipts have been submitted to Sharon Alker, Treasurer of the Defoe Society.
