Independent Scholar Travel Grants

Founded by H. R. Stoneback as one of his many initiatives as President of the Ernest Hemingway Foundation & Society (and initially funded by the Paris conference auction of works of art donated by Stoneback for funding the Award), the Independent Scholars Travel Grant (ISTG) exists to offer support for conference attendance for “Independent Scholars” without institutional affiliation.

An independent scholar without institutional affiliation may apply for this award to attend the International Ernest Hemingway Society Conference. If you would like to be considered for this award and have received confirmation that your paper has been accepted at the Conference, please forward your abstract by November 15 to Matthew Nickel at

Donations earmarked for future funding of the ISTG are welcome
