Friends of the Lynne Grundy Memorial Trust Progress Report 2009

January 2010

Dear Friend,
I'm glad to be able to report another good year for the work of the Trust, in a climate of increasing challenge for the scholars and students we support.  We made four awards, to:
Anastasia Slukhai from the Ukraine towards her work on AngloSaxon poetry and ethnic myth;

Erika Corradini towards her costs in presenting her paper on Aelfrician homilies to the AS conference at Kalamazoo;

Giovanni Bonanno towards his subsistence and tuition fees for his work on AngloSaxon weapons culture for his PhD at York University;

Katie Neville towards her costs in presenting her paper on Benedictine reform to the ISAS 2009 conference in Canada - unfortunately Katie was unable to take up the award.

These awards were generously supported by the International Society of Anglo-Saxonists, and the Teachers of Old English in Britain and Ireland, as well as the friends of the Trust and individual donors.  One of our award-winners from 2008 wrote:
I would like to thank the Trust once again for supporting my paper at Leeds IMC.  It was a fantastic experience from which I gained much support and advice on my research; without the Trust I would have been unable to present and attend the conference.  Your support made a huge difference!

Thank you for your continuing support.
With all good wishes for 2010 from us all at the Trust, 

Liz Mathews Trustee
