Adele Filene Student Presenter Grants provide financial assistance to students who have been selected to present oral research papers or research exhibits at the CSA National Symposium. The Costume Society of America greatly values the contributions of student members and wishes to foster their development. These grants of up to $600 and a day-of-presentation registration fee, funded by the CSA Endowment, are intended to encourage student participation in both the symposium and CSA. Two awards are given annually. Applicant should be a current member of the Costume Society of America and reside outside a 200 mile radius of that symposium site. Applications for the Adele Filene Award is due on February 15, 2020 (note: this deadline has been extended from January 15). The committee will make the final selection and send notifications by March 6, 2020.
