The North American Conference on British Studies announces a new funding program intended to assist scholars in British Studies who have been financially affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. The NACBS has established $500 emergency grants that can be used to cover unexpected loss of income related to this crisis.  

Eligibility: Un/underemployed British Studies scholars located in North America, including advanced graduate students and recent PhDs, who have demonstrated financial need and who do not currently have full-time/salaried employment. Those who are fully supported by a graduate program, postdoc, or full-time temporary or tenure-track position are not eligible. Applicants must have been a member of the NACBS within the last three years. 

Application process: 

  1. Applicants should submit a cover letter and CV to [email protected]. They need not include a detailed budget, but they should explain their financial need in broad terms and indicate how the funding would help stabilize their circumstances or help them achieve their professional goals. Applicants should also request that their advisor, department chair, or other supervisor send to the same email address a brief letter verifying their current standing, as soon as possible after the application is submitted. Please include your PayPal email address (for payment via PayPal) or your mailing address (for payment via check).
  2. Awards will be made on a rolling basis, until the allocated funds are expended.

Dear NACBS community,

Access to research materials has become more difficult than ever in these unusual times. Given this, NACBS has worked with Adam Matthew to make their research databases available to all of our members who are PhD candidates. They will also provide access to thirty more of our members who do not have access through their employers; this group will be helped on a first come, first served basis. We are extremely grateful to Adam Matthew for allowing us to make use of these materials.


For access information, please contact Executive Director Laura Beers at [email protected]

With best wishes for your research,

The NACBS Executive Committee
