The Pacific Coast Conference on British Studies (PCCBS) invites
submissions for the annual prize for the best conference paper presented
during the 2009 calendar year by a graduate student member of the Pacific
Coast Conference on British Studies. The prize will be awarded at the
Spring 2010 meeting at Pomona College on March 19-21. The winner will
receive a monetary prize of $200.00 and be recognized at the annual
meeting.

Submissions should be made by the graduate student who presented the
paper. Both the student and major professor must be members of the PCCBS. All graduate student papers presented at the 2009 PCCBS meeting at the
University of San Diego are treated as submissions. Also eligible for
submission are papers presented at another conference held during the 2009
calendar year by a graduate student studying at a university within the
PCCBS region. Faculty advisors among the PCCBS membership are urged to
encourage their eligible students to participate in the prize competition.

The written version of the conference paper, mirroring the oral conference
presentation, must be based on original research and deal with a topic
within British Studies. Excursive footnotes may be added.

Submitted papers, along with documentation concerning the conference where
the paper was presented, must be received by the committee chair by
January 8, 2010. Please submit the paper in the form of a digital copy

Area

IHR Mellon Fellowships for doctoral research in the humanities are administered by the Institute of Historical Research at the University of London and are funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Please forward this information to appropriate individuals and make your students aware that this source of funding exists The Fellowships are intended to help students registered as doctoral candidates at a North American university to:

1) work in original source materials in the humanities in the United Kingdom.
2) help doctoral candidates in the humanities to deepen their ability to develop knowledge from original sources.
3) provide insight from the viewpoint of doctoral candidates into how scholarly resources can be developed most helpfully in the future.

There are two types of Fellowship: Pre-dissertation and Dissertation. The Pre-dissertation Fellowship (stipend value USD $5,000) is offered for a maximum of 2 months and is intended to help candidates draw up and revise a dissertation proposal. Candidates must have completed their coursework and examinations prior to the start of the Fellowship. The Dissertation Fellowship (stipend value USD 25,000) is offered to candidates already working on their dissertation and who need to spend time in the United Kingdom to carry out archival research. These fellowships will run concurrently with the academic year (i.e. 1 October 2010 to 30 September 2011).

The closing date for receipt of applications, and supporting documentation, is 15 January 2010. Further details and forms may be obtained by using the link below.

Please inform and encourage your doctoral students to apply for these fellowships, where appropriate. This is a valuable opportunity for students who would benefit from carrying out work in original source materials held in the United Kingdom, but who otherwise might not be able to undertake such extensive research.

If you wish to join a mailing list making you aware of the University of London's academic resources and events,  send an email to James.Lees@sas.ac.uk.
