The Maureen Crisp Young Scholars
The fund is set up to provide grant
support for post-graduate scholars intending to present an academic
paper to The International Byron Society at its annual conference
in which ever country that happens to be. The student should
be studying Byron and/or the Romantic movement full time, for
a higher degree at any University in the United Kingdom.
Applications may be submitted at
any time and should include a CV and the names of two referees,
an abstract of the paper to be read, details of the conference
together with proof of the paper's acceptance by the conference
organizing committee. The full cost of attending the conference
should also be included.
In the event of the scholar being
unable to attend the conference for whatever reason after a
grant has be made, then the grant will be repayable in full
forthwith to the Maureen Crisp Young Scholars Fund. The Trustees
of the fund have complete discretion in the giving of grants
and acceptance of an application does not mean a grant will
The Fund has so far contributed
to six young scholars who attended the 27th International Byron
Conference in America in 2001 and to one attendee to the 28th
International Conference in Japan 2002.

The Elma Dangerfield Award
The Elma Dangerfield Award was
set up in 1986 by anonymous donors. Its aim is to identify and
reward scholarship for publication of new and original work
related to the life, works and times of the 6th Lord George
Gordon Noel Byron the Poet.
Books about his contemporaries
or family will not usually be considered unless they shed new
understanding relative to his thinking.
Published Doctoral dissertations
will not be considered, preferring to see the scholar continuing
with further Byron studies.
Books will be in English, however
one scholar in the past was rewarded for his contribution in
both Greek and English.
The prize is awarded annually and
announced at the Council meeting of the Annual International
Byron Conference, in which ever country that happens to be.
The final decision will be taken by the three International
Joint Presidents. More...
