Welcome to the MLA’s Professional Resources site. Although the items posted here are meant to serve the interests of the membership, the MLA does not solicit the items and cannot vouch for their reliability. Members should therefore exercise reasonable judgment in responding to them.
Entries that include deadlines remain posted until the deadline has passed; the others appear for three months.The MLA will not accept submissions that, in its judgment, are outside the subject areas of this listing. New items may be submitted online or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Because submissions are limited to 300 words, contributors should include an e-mail address or Web site address for readers who seek more detailed information. A particular project may not be announced more often than once a year.
Entries remain posted until the date of the meeting or conference has passed. A typical entry includes the conference title, dates, and location; if applicable, a deadline for submissions (proposals, abstracts, papers); and contact information for inquiries, which may include the name of a meeting representative, mailing address, fax and phone numbers, and e-mail and Web addresses. For example: Clemens Conference: Mark Twain’s Mississippi River, 27–30 Dec. 2016, Hannibal. Deadline for abstracts 15 Feb. 2016. Inquiries H. S. Finn, Executive Director, Twain Museum, 120 North Main St., Hannibal, MO) 63400 (573 555-9010; fax: 573 555-9000; email@example.com; http://www.marktwainmuseum.org/conference).

In general, the Modern Language Association offers no grants or fellowships of any kind. (Graduate student members, non-tenure-track faculty members, unemployed members, and regular and life members residing outside the United States and Canada may qualify for financial assistance to attend the annual convention.) The Fellowships and Grants list provides an alphabetical collection of fellowship and grant programs; potential applicants should contact the foundations or visit their Web sites for complete information on procedures and requirements. The list omits prize contests and a number of purely literary fellowships.
