HECAA Pandemic Relief Grant
Applications due by 21 May 2021

HECAA announces a relief program to support new and existing members during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Working with funds raised during our recent Pandemic Relief campaign, HECAA will distribute up to six grants of $250 each to assist recipients suffering from financial hardship. The grants may be used to cover a variety of specific costs, including research, publication subventions, equipment purchases, digital subscriptions, and more. HECAA is also sensitive to the ways in which the pandemic has curtailed employment opportunities and other forms of institutional support more broadly. While the grants cannot fully replace this funding, they can be used to cover expenses for those who have experienced furloughs, layoffs, and/or the cancellation of internships, fellowships, or other institutional funding.

Preference will be given to contingent scholars, graduate students, and other early career scholars (within five years of PhD). All recipients must be HECAA members in good standing. If you are not yet a member, but would like to join, please contact us at hecaamembers@gmail.com. Reduced rate memberships are available for those with demonstrated need.

• Short CV (2 pages)
• Brief description of how the pandemic has adversely affected your work (1 paragraph)
• Summary of how you intend to spend the funds (1 paragraph)

Please submit your applications by 21 May 2021 to hecaamembers@gmail.com. Applicants will be notified of funding distributions by 1 June 2021.
