Lambda Iota Tau (LIT) Research Grants

Aims and Eligibility

LIT Research Grants are designed to support individual members at the undergraduate or graduate level as they complete original research that furthers the goals of the Society. Grant money of up to $1,000, with up to $500 for runners-up, will support travel to and use of archives or collections important to their research. The winning applicants will demonstrate the relevance of the research to English and English-related fields and may also describe the effect on current coursework, future research, or career pursuits. Each applicant will identify goals, propose outcomes, and estimate specific costs for the research travel. Students may not request grant money for research supported by a previous LIT Research Grant. Any members interested in support for summer or study abroad programs would apply for those scholarships rather than for a LIT Research Grant.

Applicants may use the Sigma Tau Delta AwardSpring platform to apply for this grant. All research travel and the resulting written or presented outcome must be completed before May 2023.


The 2022 Application period will be between February 28 and April 11, 2022.
