C19 Travel Fund              C19 Travel Fund

C19 is delighted to announce that we are once again inviting applications for a travel grant for conference participants with limited funds to attend the C19 conference in Coral Gables at the end of March 2022. This award is intended to expand and diversify the number of participants in the conference.


This year we will award a limited number of grants of up to $500 each to help defray registration and travel costs, lodging, and other expenses for conference participants with limited travel funding available in order to enable them to present their work at C19. The awards are intended to support contingent faculty, graduate students without access to travel funding, and other scholars for whom travel to C19 would present significant financial hardship. Priority will be given to early career scholars and others who would benefit most from participation in C19 at this point in their professional lives.


Applicants should send the following materials:


1.     The abstract from their accepted C19 paper (350-500 words)

2.     A statement of financial need (outlining, in brief, the reasons this award would be especially useful at this point in their careers; maximum of two paragraphs)

3.     A brief CV with full contact information 


Please submit these as a single PDF document, with your last name in the document title, to Justine Murison, C19 Membership Chair at, no later than January 31, 2022. Note: you should receive a confirmation of receipt within 48 hours of your submission. If you do not receive confirmation, please write again to confirm receipt of your application. The recipients of the grant will be announced on February 18, 2022. Please contact Justine Murison if you have other questions about the Travel Fund.


And of course, we are eager for donations to the fund. If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution, please visit our C19 Fundly page at or you can add a donation amount of your choice when you pay for your registration by logging onto our Ex Ordo conference platform at

C19 is a 501(c)3 non-profit academic society.


Thank you in advance for your generosity and consideration,
