AME SCHOLARSHIPS FOR PARTICIPATION IN 2013 CONFERENCE, MONTREAL, CANADA
The Association for Moral Education will award a number of scholarships to a maximum value of $1000 each, to be spent on attendance and participation at the Montreal Conference in 2013. These scholarships are intended to assist graduate and postdoctoral students who otherwise would be unable to attend. We will also be giving several grants to young scholars (i.e., individuals in the first 5 years of an academic appointment) with the knowledge that young scholars have a number of conferences they might go to and we hope that they will find AME is a welcome home for their work. It is hoped that these grants will also enable the participation of delegates from regions of the world that might otherwise be under-represented.
These awards will be administered, and applicants selected, by a committee consisting of Bruce Maxwell (University of Montreal, 2013 Conference Chair), Sharon Lamb (University of Massachusetts, Boston; AME President), and Phyllis Curtis-Tweed (Medgar Evers College, CUNY, AME Treasurer). Scholarships may be used to support travel costs, payment of the conference fee and/or accommodation and subsistence, depending on individual circumstances. Applicants will also be expected to obtain funding from other sources so far as possible.
Applicants will be required to submit, by email and in English:
1. Full name and contact details including mailing address, phone number and email address
2. A cover letter of no more than one page summarizing the applicant's reasons for wishing to attend the conference, and the importance of the scholarship in making this possible. Applicants should indicate whether they have applied for or intend to apply for funding from other sources (e.g., the academic institution at which they are employed or are studying).
3. An estimated budget for their participation in the conference, including details of their travel costs and accommodation and subsistence. The budget should state the amount of funding requested from the scholarship fund and what applicants intend to spend this on.
4. A CV of no more than one page including degrees obtained; current academic affiliation and publications (if any).
5. A conference proposal, including title of paper or other presentation; nature of the presentation (individual paper or otherwise); abstract of up to 150 words; 500 word summary.
6. A letter of recommendation from an academic supervisor, colleague or employer.
Information on how to apply for a participation scholarship will be available soon on this page.
