The Directors and Advisory Board of ICMAC are pleased to announce a competition for Registration-Fee Waiver grants and assistance with up to three nights of campus accommodation for the 16th International Congress of Medieval Canon Law, to be held in St. Louis 19-25 July 2020.

The grants, which are aimed at graduate/PhD students and independent scholars, including adjunct faculty who do not have access to institutional funding from a home university, will cover the reduced registration fee of $75.00 and up to $225.00 towards campus accommodation (3 nights). Regrettably, we are not able to assist with travel expenses.

Applications should be submitted via email to Dr. K.G. Cushing, President of ICMAC, at k.g.cushing@keele.ac.uk no later than 1 March 2020 and should include the following information (ideally submitted as one attachment in pdf form): name, university affiliation and name of supervisor (except for independent scholars and adjunct faculty), contact details (including email address), title and abstract of the accepted paper (or poster) to be presented, a one-page curriculum vitae, and a short statement (not more than 500 words) making the case for support. The Directors will be especially interested in hearing about what benefit applicants anticipate deriving from attendance at the Congress. Applicants are also asked to state information about other applications for funding that they are making to their home university or other body to support attendance at the Congress.

Candidates will be informed of the outcome of their applications no later than 15 March 2020. N.B. Please note that all applicants must be presenting a paper or poster at the Congress. Because funds are limited, preference may be given to applicants who have not previously received support from ICMAC to attend a Congress.
