BCLT/NSTS bursary for Nida School of Translation Studies, 2012

Dear all,
This looks like an excellent opportunity for a scholar or early-career researcher in literary translation (details of application requirements and deadline still apparently pending):

The British Centre for Literary Translation (BCLT) and the Nida School of Translation Studies (NSTS) are pleased to announce a joint initiative in the form of a collaborative bursary  for NSTS 2012. The bursary is available to qualified applicants at the advanced PhD candidate, post-doctoral or faculty level who can show a demonstrable financial need. The bursary aims to support emerging literary translation researchers within the UK who would benefit from attending this intensive, international research symposium.

NSTS operates under the auspices of the San Pellegrino University Foundation in Misano Adriatico, Italy. Now in its sixth year, NSTS convenes for two weeks each May, bringing together scholars from around the world, including many of the top names in Translation Studies. In 2012, the Nida Professors will be Anthony Pym (Tarragona) and Musa Dube (Botswana).
