AME and JME Grants for Participation in 2015 Conference, Santos

The Association for Moral Education and Journal of Moral Education Trust will jointly award a number of grants to a maximum value of $1000 each, to be spent on attendance and participation at the AME Santos Conference, 2015. These grants are intended to assist scholars who otherwise would be unable to attend. It is hoped that they will enable the participation of delegates from regions of the world that might otherwise be under-represented, and of delegates at an early stage in their academic career.

These awards will be administered, and applicants selected, by a committee consisting of:

Patricia BATAGLIA (Chair; Universidade Estadual Paulista, Brazil)
Ulisses ARAÚJO (Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil, 2015 conference chair)
Phyllis CURTIS-TWEED (Treasurer of AME; Berkeley Institute, Pembroke, Bermuda)
Susana FRISANCHO (Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, Lima, Peru)
Monica TAYLOR (Trustee of the Journal of Moral Education Trust, UK)

Grants may be used to support travel costs, payment of the conference fee and/or accommodation and subsistence, depending on individual circumstances. Applicants will also be expected to obtain funding from other sources so far as possible.

Applicants will be required to submit, by email and in English.

  1. Full name and contact details including mailing address, phone number and email address.
  2. A covering letter of no more than one page summarizing the applicant’s reasons for wishing to attend the conference, and the importance of the grants in making this possible. Applicants should indicate whether they have applied for or intend to apply for funding from other sources (e.g. the academic institution at which they are employed or are studying).
  3. An estimated budget for their participation in the conference, including details of their travel costs and accommodation and subsistence. The budget should state the amount of funding requested from the grants fund and what applicants intend to spend this on.

  5. A conference proposal, including title of paper or other presentation; nature of the presentation (individual paper or otherwise); abstract of up to 150 words; 500 word summary.
  6. A letter of recommendation from an academic supervisor, colleague or employer.
  7. Declaration that if the grants are approved and the paper is accepted you will undertake to make every effort to go to the conference.
