Jim Greenfield Graduate Travel Bursaries

In contrast to the undergraduate competition, there will be no fixed deadline for applications for Jim Greenfield Graduate Travel Bursaries.

Jim Greenfield Graduate Travel Bursaries will be awarded competitively in support of certain incidental travel expenses (these will typically include airfare or gas if driving, ground transportation, registration for conferences, and reasonable accommodations) incurred by graduate students in pursuit of academic excellence and in direct connection with their programs of study. The Department will consider applications for funds to assist with:

  • participation in national or international programs (such as the Department's own Rome program, the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, the ANS summer program in New York, etc.);
  • travel undertaken in connection with specialized dissertation work;
  • participation in professional conferences to deliver an invited or refereed paper in cases where this is not covered from other resources, such as travel funds from the Graduate School, application for which must be made on your behalf by the GPC;
  • attendance at one or two APA meetings when the student has completed or is close to completing the dissertation and is a candidate for the job market (in this instance it is not necessarily expected that you will be giving a paper).

With respect to travel to conferences, preference will typically be given to (a) major conferences (e.g., APA, CAMWS) and to the local CAPN conference; participation in graduate student conferences is less likely to be covered; and (b) to students at the post MA or PhC stage. If you wish to apply for funding, before submitting a paper for presentation you should consult with the Graduate Program Coordinator, the Chair, or a faculty advisor about the relevance of the proposal to your particular circumstances and interests and the anticipated benefits of attending the conference.

Your application should be made to the Department Chair, and in order to be considered, must include four copies of each of the following as soon as you are aware of your need but in any case no less than four weeks prior to the event:

(i) A letter of application (300-500 words). The letter should describe the educational purpose the proposed travel and the resulting financial need in general terms. It should also indicate if you anticipate making additional applications for Greenfield travel bursaries in the same academic year.

(ii) A budget listing anticipated expenses. In all cases, students are expected to find the lowest fares in order to maximize our resources so that we can benefit as many people as possible. NB: In the event that an award is made, in order to receive reimbursement you will need to supply the office with all original receipts (keep photocopies for your records) and submit these receipts no later than two weeks after your return.

(iii) A short CV (including any previous awards from the Greenfield Scholarship Fund).

Please keep in mind that these awards are competitive and will be made on the basis of various factors, including the professional significance of the proposed travel, its relevance to your particular educational goals, the number and dollar amount of travel awards you have applied for in a given year, your level of success and progress in the program to date, and the availability of funds.
