Barry Leeds Travel Fund

Travel Grants and Scholarship Applications

To honor the memory of the late Barry H. Leeds, one of the founders of the Mailer Society, his family and friends have established The Barry Leeds Travel Fund. In 2017, the Fund will award $100 travel grants to students attending the next Society conference in Sarasota (October 26, 27 and 28). The Society will also accept applications for a $500 award to scholars traveling to the University of Texas-Austin to study the Mailer papers at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center. A brief letter explaining the applicant’s research project should be sent to Society Board member, Dr. Robert Begiebing (rbegiebing [at] comcast [dot] net) by March 15, 2017. He and Board member Dr. Bonnie Culver will chose a winner. Only one $500 award will be given in 2017; in future years, if the Leeds Travel Fund grows, more awards will be given.
