In order of priority, funding will be awarded to: 
1) students who are attending the 2017 Dickens Universe or who attended the 2017 Winter Conference

3) students who have attended past Dickens Universe conferences 

Note: After completion of travel, grant recipients are required to submit a short report of how the funds were used, and the impact on the students’ research.
 
Funding for this program was provided by the very generous 2017 Giving Day donors.
