Each year the Hemingway Society accepts applications for its Lewis-Reynolds-Smith Founders Fellowship grant, and typically makes two awards of $1,000 each to support the development of a Hemingway-related project. The award honors the contributions of Robert W. Lewis, Michael Reynolds, and Paul Smith, whose work greatly influenced Hemingway studies. Preference is given to enrolled graduate students, independent scholars, or recent recipients of doctorate degrees. Applications are due by February 19, 2023.
