Stipends

Thanks to the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, a limited number of stipends are available to make participation possible for those who would not otherwise be able to attend. We ask applicants to first seek support from their home institutions and organizations and to apply for stipends only if you do not have other resources available. Stipend applications will be reviewed by the Program Committee and recipients selected based on merit and need.


If you are interested in applying for a stipend, please select the minimum award that would make it possible for you to participate. These amounts are not intended to fully cover all expenses.


        • We will waive the registration fee for 20 applicants.
        • We will waive the registration fee and cover up to $500 (USD) of travel expenses for 20 participants.
        • We will waive registration and cover up to $1250 (USD) of travel expenses for 12 participants.


You can apply for a stipend through the conference proposal form.

We may provide additional stipends as funding and sponsorships allow. If you are interested in sponsoring additional attendees, please contact the conference co-chairs: ld4conf_chairs@googlegroups.com
