J. B. Harley Research Fellowships

The American Friends of the J. B. Harley Research Fellowships, Inc. is delighted to support participation at ICHC 2017 through the provision of travel grants. The grants will cover all, or part, of each recipient’s direct travel costs to Antwerp. Conference fees, accommodation costs, and other expenses cannot be covered.

Each application must contain:

  • contact details, including a working email address;
  • an explanation of the need for support;
  • a statement of the impact the conference is likely to have on the applicant’s scholarly or professional career; and
  • a detailed budget of the probable travel costs to Belo Horizonte.

An application for the travel grant must be submitted through the website conference at the same time that an applicant submits the proposal for a paper or poster presentation (see conference schedule for the deadline!). Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. All applications must be in writing and submitted through the conference secretariat.

The selection committee consists of the directors of the American Friends of the J.B. Harley Research Fellowships, Inc. The committee will select potential recipients of the travel grants from among the applicants whose papers or posters have been selected for ICHC 2017. (The award will be rescinded if the applicant withdraws from the presentation.) The decisions concerning the travel grants will be based on the applicant’s need and the expected quality of the applicants’ contribution to the conference. Awards of travel grants will be made without regard to the nationality, ethnic origin, gender, religious affiliation, age, discipline, or profession of the applicants. The committee will endeavor to notify applicants by January 15, 2015.

Successful applicants will write a short report, due to the chairman of the American Friends of the J.B. Harley Research Fellowships, Inc. by September 30, 2017, describing how the travel grant was expended and how ICHC 2017 contributed to their professional development. The report must be accompanied by receipts for all travel costs covered by the award.
