(for fellowship and prize applications, submission of paper proposals
for meetings, or special issues of journals)
[Note. Most of the fellowship and prize deadlines recur annually[marked with *]
and those will therefore be left on this page after the date has passed. Be aware that the date may change from one
year to the next, andshould always be checked. Where institutions have not yet updated their site, the previous
year's deadline is left, followed by a question-mark. Otherwise, the date is followed by
[C] indicating that the next deadline has been confirmed and noted or
[P] for permanently fixed dates
Not surprisingly, a number of awards were put on hold during the pandemic and the relevant pages frozen.
In the hope that they will be revived, those entries have been left in.
