William Morris Society in the United States

WILLIAM MORRIS SOCIETY IN THE UNITED STATES: The Joseph R. Dunlap Memorial Fellowship supports scholarly, creative, and translation projects about William Morris and his designs, writings, and other work. Up to $1,000 per year is granted to individuals (there can be multiple or partial awards) for research and other expenses, including travel to conferences. Projects may deal with any subject—biographical, literary, historical, social, artistic, political, typographical—relating to Morris and may be scholarly or creative in nature. In addition, at the committee’s discretion one or two William Morris Society Awards may be offered each year for a total of up to $1,000. Applicants for all awards may be from any country; applications are particularly encouraged from younger members of the society and from those at the beginning of their careers. Recipients need not have an academic or institutional appointment, and the PhD is not required. Applicants should send to the society a two-page description of their projects, including a timeline and an indication of where the results might be published, along with a CV and at least one letter of recommendation. The deadline for applications is 15 December. Visit for more information. Send applications to Florence Boos, William Morris Soc. in the United States, Dept. of English, Univ. of Iowa, Iowa City 52242 ( Submissions by e-mail are preferred, although supporting documents may be sent by regular post.
