C19 Travel Fund: Call for Applications

C19 Travel Fund: Call for Travel Grant Applications


C19 is delighted to announce that we are once again inviting applications for travel grants for conference participants in need of funds to attend the C19 conference in Pasadena, March 14-16, 2024. These awards are intended to expand and diversify the number of conference attendees.


This year we will award a limited number of grants of up to $500 each to help defray costs for travel, lodging, and conference registration for C19 members with limited access to travel funding. This helps ensure that scholars from a wide range of career stages and institutions will be able to present their work at C19. The awards support contingent faculty, graduate students without institutional support for conference travel, and other scholars for whom travel to C19 would present significant financial hardship. Priority will be given to early career scholars and others who would benefit most from participation in C19 at this point in their professional lives.


Applicants should send the following materials:


  1. The abstract from their accepted C19 paper (350-500 words)

  2. A statement of financial need (outlining, in brief, the reasons this award would be especially useful at this point in their careers; maximum of two paragraphs)

  3. A brief CV with full contact information 


Please submit these as a single PDF document, with your last name in the document title, to Matthew Suazo, C19 Membership Chair, at no later than January 31, 2024. (Note: you should receive a confirmation of receipt within 48 hours of your submission. If you do not receive confirmation, please write again to confirm receipt of your application.) The recipients of the grant will be announced by February 12, 2024. Please feel free to contact me directly ( if you have questions about the application process.


Thank you in advance for your generosity and consideration,


Matt Suazo


Assistant Professor of English, Kenyon College

Membership Chair, C19
