Support a New Scholar Program

Dear SFRA community,

We are pleased to post a call for applications for the SFRA Support a New Scholar Program (SNS), for 2023-2024.

The SNS program supports advanced students and scholars of outstanding promise to assist them in taking part as active members of the science fiction community. In alternating years, this excellence-based grant is aimed to help fund one graduate student and one non-tenure-track scholar for a period of two years, covering SFRA membership costs. [Note: This notice corrects the earlier SNS call; for 2023-’24, we are supporting Track A applicants (graduate students), not Track B applicants (non-tenure-track Ph.D.s) as previously mentioned.]

Please find in the attached PDF eligibility criteria, an application form, and information on other requested materials for this year’s track.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: November 1, 2022

If you have any further questions please contact the SFRA Vice President, Ida Yoshinaga ida@hawaii.edu.
