> Dr. Joshi Travel Grants


Dr. Joshi, "the literacy globe trotter", has inspired many researchers and students to investigate writing as well as reading. Dr. Joshi had funds from NATO for many years, which he used to support both research and research conferences for investigators and their students throughout the world. He started the first journal that focused on interdisciplinary research on writing as well as reading and which had an international audience: Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal. Dr. Joshi continues to be an active, collaborative researcher conducting literacy research across languages, cultures, and countries. He is a pioneer who advanced scientific knowledge and also promoted others in their efforts to do so. Naming the travel grants for him is a well deserved honor.

Established in 2012 for the conference held in Porto, Dr. Joshi’s travel grants are offered by the SIG Writing Conference's organizing committee to support part of the costs of PhD students attending our conferences.

Selection of granted students is made on the basis of a motivation letter and a short CV.
