The Polish Studies Association is now accepting applications for research award (or awards) totaling up to $2,000. The award(s) are intended to support active, graduate-level research on projects pertaining to Polish topics; they are not intended as write-up grants. This year in light of the difficulty of transatlantic travel, the committee may award two smaller grants for local European travel or to cover the cost of digitizing sources in Polish collections rather than a single grant. Applications are due October 16, 2020 and require a two-page description of the project, a schedule of the research plan (including the location of relevant documents), and a budget. Please also include contingency plans to take into account any COVID-related restrictions on materials or opening times. Applications for funds to support digitizing or scanning of materials in Polish collections must specify how/by whom the work will be done. Awards will be announced at the PSA annual meeting to be held at the virtual convention of the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies on Friday, November 6, and funds will be made available to recipients soon thereafter.
