2023 Emily Dickinson International Society Graduate Student Fellowship

The EDIS announces a fellowship award in support of excellence in graduate student scholarship on Emily Dickinson. The project need not be devoted solely to Dickinson, but her work should be a substantial focus.

The award may be used for any expense incurred to advance the project. Preference will be given to applicants in the dissertation stage or writing a work aimed at peer-reviewed digital or print publication.

Graduate students from the United States as well as other countries are encouraged to apply; the application as well as the scholarly work must, however, be in English. To apply, please send a cv, a cover letter, a 600-800 word project description, a brief bibliography, and contact information for two references familiar with the work to Elizabeth Petrino at Use the subject line “EDIS grad award.last name.”

Please ensure that you receive confirmation of receipt. Applications are due by January 30, 2024. The Awards Committee will review the proposals; applicants will be notified of final decisions by February 29, 2024.

The award recipient will be asked to submit a report about the work accomplished with the fellowship support within one year.
