Henry G. Burke Grants
The Jane Austen Society of North America invites applications for support
of projects on Jane Austen. The
Society will consider making awards from a fund of $5000 (U.S.) for one or more
research or creative projects per year that will help to bring Jane Austenís
name before the public. Such an
award might enable the recipient to visit a special collection so as to complete
an article, for instance; or to assemble a Jane Austen display in a school; or
to present a dramatisation in his or her locale; or to pay permission fees for
quotations in a book on Jane Austen; etc. To
apply, write a letter describing your project and your qualifications for
completing it, and specifying your financial needs, to Joan Brantz, Chair, JASNA
Subcommittee on Henry G. Burke Grants, Briar House, Elkins Park, PA.
Deadline: applications should be postmarked on or before June 1, 1991. Recipients will be notified by November 1.
