Graduate Student Scholarship Fund

GRAD STUDENT scholarship

Thanks to the generous donations of many PAMLA members, we are able to offer a number of scholarships to select graduate students presenting papers at the annual conference. Unfortunately, we have to turn down a good number of applicants for this award every year, due to a lack of donations; so please consider making a donation to help a graduate student to attend our annual PAMLA conference.

In the past awards have ranged between $60 and $120. Applicants must be current members of PAMLA at the time of application.

How to Apply?

Participants can apply for this award by July 31 via the site (click on the Scholarships tab, and follow the directions from there). Awards will be announced by the end of August, but will not be awarded until after the conference itself. Participants must be a current graduate student in an MA, MFA, or PhD program.
