1) Student Travel Grant:
The Nineteenth Century Studies Association announces the establishment of a Student Travel Grant of $400 to support the presentation of a paper [sole-] authored by a student and accepted for a session at the 2014 annual meeting of the society. The following eligibility criteria apply:
1) the paper proposal has been accepted, and the paper will be presented by the author at the conference
2) the paper is authored by the student presenting and is not co-authored
3) the paper is unpublished and has not been presented at another conference
4) the student is enrolled fulltime at an accredited college or university
5) the student is traveling more than 250 miles in order to attend the conference
6) the student registers for the conference and participates fully in its activities
7) the travel grant decision is based on review of the completed paper, not an abstract
Students agree that they will not submit a proposal to participate in the conference pending receipt of a grant. There may be several student presenters competing for limited travel support [one grant per year is anticipated]. Authors of all proposals, at the time the proposal is submitted, agree to attend and present the paper if the proposal is accepted, regardless of whether or not a travel grant is later awarded. Students with accepted proposals who are interested in applying for a travel grant should immediately make known to the conference program chair their intention to apply and submit the completed paper to the conference program chair by January 15th . Final decision regarding the travel grant will be made by the conference committee and announced February 15th. The award check will be presented at the conference, and the travel grant recipient will be recognized.

3)NCSA Emerging Scholars Award
The Nineteenth Century Studies Association (NCSA) is pleased to announce the 2013 Emerging Scholars Award. The work of emerging scholars represents the promise and long-term future of interdisciplinary scholarship in 19th-century studies. In recognition of the excellent publications of this constituency of emerging scholars, this award recognizes an outstanding article or essay published within five years of the author's doctorate. Entries can be from any discipline focusing on any aspect of the long 19th century (the French Revolution to World War I), must be published in English or be accompanied by an English translation, and must be by a single author. Submission of essays that are interdisciplinary is especially encouraged.
Entrants must be within five years of having received a doctorate or other terminal professional degree, and must have less than seven years of experience either in an academic career, or as a post-terminal-degree independent scholar or practicing professional.
Only articles physically published between September 1, 2012 and August 31, 2013 (even if the citation date of the journal is different) are eligible for the 2013 Emerging Scholar Award. Articles published in any scholarly journal, including on-line journals, or in edited volumes of essays are eligible and may be submitted either by the author or the publisher of a journal, anthology, or volume containing independent essays. In any given year, an applicant may submit more than one article for this award.
The winning article will be selected by a committee of nineteenth-century scholars representing diverse disciplines. Articles submitted to the NCSA Article Prize competition are ineligible for the Emerging Scholars Award. The winner will receive $500 to be presented at the annual NCSA Conference in Chicago, IL, March 20-22, 2014.
