2010 EDIS Graduate Student Fellowship

The Emily Dickinson International Society (EDIS) announces a fellowship award in support of graduate student scholarship on Emily Dickinson. The award, in the amount of $1,000, may be used to fund travel to collections or conferences, to support book purchases, or for other research expenses necessary to the project. Preference will be given to applicants enrolled in doctoral programs and engaged in the writing of dissertations or other major projects directed toward publication. Applicants should be aware that a dissertation project need not be focused on

Dickinson only; however, a substantial part of the work should significantly engage Dickinson’s work. To apply, please send a curriculum vitae, description of the project (including intended use of the award funding), the names and contact information of two references, and a dissertation
prospectus or other relevant writing sample (no more than 25 pages) to Martha Nell Smith, Professor, Department of English, 3238 Tawes Hall, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742. Electronic applications welcome (indeed, preferred): Applications are due by May 15, 2010; the award will be announced by June 30, 2010.
