About the Archie Green Student Travel Awards
The AFS Public Programs Section will provide up to three
awards of up to $500 each, named for folklorist and activist Archie Green of
San Francisco, for students to defray costs for traveling to the meeting. The
Section is interested in supporting graduate and undergraduate students who
have an interest in working as public folklorists, or who have chosen an area
of public folklore as a primary topic of research.
Application materials will consist of: (1) a two-page letter
written by the applicant, (2) a letter of support written by a faculty member
or public folklorist that describes the student’s interest in public folklore
and supports the student’s plan for using the AFS meeting to further her or his
interests in public folklore, and (3) a budget outlining anticipated expenses.
The applicant’s letter should address her/his interest in public folklore,
goals for attending the meeting, and plans for using the resources of the
meeting to further her/his academic and/or professional development.
Previous recipients of student travel awards are not
eligible to apply.
The deadline for receipt of applications is
August 28. Awards will be announced in early September. To apply, send the
above materials by email to committee chair Cliff Murphy of the Maryland State
Arts Council at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
