  1. I am a final year PhD student at the University of Delhi, India. Although I have the benefit of working with an excellent supervisor, Prof. Sambudha Sen, my thesis suffers from lack of documentation as most of the primary materials are housed in the libraries of the UK. I have received a short term research grant of 500 pounds to visit the UK. I require to supplement this amount with an additional travel grant. I wish to know if I am eligible to apply for the Sheldon Hanft Travel Award.

  2. Dear Aratika Das. Unfortunately the Hanft travel award has been suspended for the time being. I will notify you if this changes. Best of luck to you in your research efforts.
