Publisher Peter Lang is running a 2021 Peter Lang Young Scholars Competition in Science Fiction Studies

Proposals are invited from early career scholars in Science Fiction Studies [planning to write] academic monographs [and to qualify you must] have been awarded a PhD between 2015 and 2020 or expect to be awarded a PhD in 2021.

The deadline is 30th November 2020.

Also of interest is the $500 John A. Lent Scholarship in Comics Studies, which should open summer 2020 and which will then be seeking…

a current student who has authored, or is in the process of authoring, a substantial research-based writing project about comics.

Refreshingly, you don’t have to have a thesis in hand, as… “all students of comics are encouraged to apply.”
