Funding Opp for Research on Children's Lit

I think that some of you are working on research and papers that might be relevant to this upcoming (very soon, in fact) funding opportunity. I emailed Susan Stan to ask about eligibility of Canadian scholars, and she said there was no reason why not! So don't hesitate to give it a shot!



Each year the Children's Literature Association provides grants in two categories-Faculty Research and Graduate Student Research. These are competitive grants that vary in award amount from $500 to $1500, based on the number and needs of the winning applicants. Up to $5,000 is available to be awarded in each category.
Further details about criteria and application procedure for the ChLA Faculty Research Grants can be found at http://www.childlitassn.org/faculty_grant.html
Further details about criteria and application procedure for the Hannah Beiter Graduate Student Research Grants can be found at http://www.childlitassn.org/beiter_grant.html

Applications will be accepted from now through February 1, 2011. Any questions about eligibility of projects or other matters relating to the grants should be directed to the Grants Committee Chair, Susan Stan, at stan1sm@cmich.edu  or to the ChLA Administrator, Kathy Kiessling, at kkiessling@childlitassn.org
