Postgraduate Bursaries

The British Comparative Literature Association is pleased to announce a new scheme of postgraduate bursaries, designed to support attendance at conferences or research trips by BCLA members registered for a postgraduate degree (MA, MRes, MPhil, or PhD). Each award will be up to a maximum of £250 per student.  

There are two application rounds each year, with deadlines of 31 May and 30 November, 12 noon UK time. No application will be accepted after the deadline, and applications cannot be made retrospectively. Applicants can only make one application per calendar year. Any publication resulting from research supported by this scheme must acknowledge the support received. Applicants must be current members of the BCLA. Postgraduate bursary applications may be accompanied by applications for membership.

In order to apply for a BCLA postgraduate bursary, fill in the application form electronically and send it as an email attachment to both Dr Emily Finer and Professor Naomi Segal.
