If a conference date overlaps the end of one review period and the beginning of the next, submit an application for the grant period in which the actual presentation falls.

Eligibility 

Applicants must be tenure-eligible or tenured Hellenic College Holy Cross faculty members actively participating (e.g., reading a paper, organizing or chairing a session, or serving as a panelist) in a professional meeting. Papers, sessions, roundtables, etc. must clearly relate to Byzantine studies. Grants are limited to one per applicant in a one-year period.

Selection Criteria 

Applicants will be peer-reviewed by an external grants committee. The committee will assess the eligibility of the proposed activity and consider its merit. Preference will be given to applicants who have not received a grant in the previous two cycles, who have no or limited sources of funding, and who are participating in major national or international meetings.

Reimbursement & Reporting

Successful applicants will be reimbursed for eligible expenses up to the award amount. Eligible expenses include registration fees, lodging, meals, transportation, and parking and tolls. For travel by personal automobile, actual mileage from HCHC or home to and from the conference location will be reimbursed at the current mileage rate of 56.5 cents per mile, plus tolls and parking. 

Grantees must submit the Request for Reimbursement Form and original receipts to the MJC no later than 30 days after the close of the conference. The MJC will consider grants forfeited if proper documentation is not submitted in a timely manner.

The names of grantees and their abstracts will be published on the MJC’s website.
