Dear MAP Members and Friends,

I am writing as the Vice President of the Medieval Association of the Pacific (MAP), in charge of handling the Benton Award, to remind you that specifically independent medievalists and graduate students are encouraged to apply. Please also circulate this announcement to graduate students who might not know about it.

The John F. Benton Award
This award, named in honor of its progenitor, John F. Benton, MAP President 1982-1984, provides travel funds for all members of the Medieval Association of the Pacific–independent medievalists and graduate students in particular–who might not otherwise receive support from institutions.

The award may be used to defray costs connected with delivering a paper at any conference, especially for MAP conferences, or connected to scholarly research. Up to three awards will be presented each year, for $400 apiece. Applications should include a one-page vita, an abstract of a paper submitted to the conference, and a photocopy of the Call for Papers or conference announcement; if the application is for travel to research, it should include a one-page vita, and a letter outlining the research project. Send applications via email attachment by January 5, 2012 to the vice president of the Association, Anita Obermeier (AObermei@unm.edu<mailto:AObermei@unm.edu>).

Prorch broadcasts these call for papers to researchers who have opted to receive call for papers on monthly basis. Advertisement space is offered to journals and conferences at nominal prices.
