Grants for Conference Attendance

Handel Institute - Conference Awards

Applications are invited for Handel Institute Conference Awards. These new awards, which are available for a trial period from 2014, are intended for individuals who wish to attend an overseas conference in order to read a paper on Handel (or on a Handel-related subject) that has already been accepted by the conference organisers. The awards are open to UK residents who wish to attend a conference elsewhere and to overseas residents who wish to attend one in the UK. Awards will relate to the cost of travel and/or accommodation, and applications must be submitted before expenditure is incurred. Preference will be given to applicants who are postgraduate students or early-career academics and to those wishing to attend a biennial conference of the American Handel Society, an annual conference of the Georg-Friedrich-Händel-Gesellschaft (in Halle) or a conference of the Handel Institute; but the field is not limited in either of these ways.

Further Particulars

American Handel Society – The J. Merrill Knapp Research Fellowship

The Board of Directors of The American Handel Society invites applications for the J. Merrill Knapp Research Fellowship to support scholarly projects related to Handel and his world. One or more fellowships may be awarded on even-numbered years to a total of $2,000. Requests for funding may include, but are not limited to, purchase of microfilms, travel for research, and production expenses for publication. This fellowship may be used on its own or to augment other grants or fellowships. In awarding the Knapp Fellowship, preference will be given to graduate students, scholars in the early stages of their careers, and independent scholars with no source of institutional support.
The deadline was 1 March 2016
