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.
