Grants made by THT - IMC

International Medieval Congress 2014

Since its inception in 1994, the International Medieval Congress has established itself as an annual event with an attendance of over 1,800 academics and medievalists from all over the world. It has become the largest conference of its kind in Europe. 

For 2014, the THT agreed with the Institute for Medieval Studies at the University of Leeds to fund 2 bursaries of £150 each, to offset travel, registration or other costs incurred in attending the IMC in 2014. Application for the bursaries was open to registered postgraduate students who proposed to give presentations from a list of approved topics.

The recipients of the THT Travel Bursaries presented their papers in the lecture rooms of the University of Leeds, as noted in the IMC Handbook:
