The purpose of the ASTR Research Fellowships is to underwrite some of the research expenses of scholars undertaking projects significant to the field of theatre and/or performance studies. The total award of up to $3000 may be divided among multiple winners. The fellowships can be used in conjunction with funding from other sources.
Anyone holding a terminal degree and who has been a member of ASTR for at least three of the last five years is eligible to apply. Rank and institutional affiliation are not considered.
Application must include:
- A 150-word abstract of the project;
- A longer but concise narrative description of the project, indicating its procedures, goals, and significance within the field of theater/performance studies;
- A budget for the project, indicating the portion of expenses that ASTR funds will be used to underwrite, such as travel, reproductions, etc.; and
- A two-page curriculum vitae.
Please upload application documents in PDF or Microsoft Word (.doc, or .docx) format. Whenever possible, all requested materials should be consolidated into a single zip file before being uploaded.
Committee members will consider the merit of the project within the field of theater/performance studies and of the individual scholar's academic research endeavors.
Please direct questions to Committee Chair Miriam Felton-Dansky at feltondansky[at]gmail.com.
Applications are due Tuesday, July 16, 2019. Early submissions encouraged.
