Antonio Cao Travel Award

NeMLA is sponsoring a special graduate student travel award in memory of Antonio Cao, member of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at Hofstra University, a passionate scholar, and an invaluable and loyal member of NeMLA.

To honor Dr. Cao’s memory and his unwavering support of students, this prize will be awarded to a graduate student who is presenting on any aspect of Spanish culture or literature at the upcoming 50th Anniversary Convention in Washington, DC.

Please email applications to cao.travel@nemla.org. Applications will be evaluated on the basis of the quality of the student’s abstract; the relevance of their topic to Spanish studies; the funds available from the student’s institution; and the travel distance to the Convention. Please include all such information in the application. 

Application Deadline: December 31
