The Scottish Universities' International Summer School offer fellowships to translators who wish to learn more about British, Irish and Scottish Literature, and are an institution which seeks to promote inter-cultural exchange.

Details of the fellowship are as follows (and can also be found on the website www.suisss.ed.ac.uk): 

Edwin Morgan Translation Fellowship (Funded by Creative Scotland) 
To celebrate the life and work of the translator, poet and academic, Edwin Morgan, Creative Scotland is funding two free places on the six-week Text and Context course at the Scottish Universities’ International Summer School to two professional translators with an interest in twentieth-century and contemporary Scottish writing. This fellowship will foster collaboration between translators with the aim of promoting Scottish Literature, in particular, to an international audience. 


The courses take place during the 10th July – 19th August 2017 at the University of Edinburgh, and will cover the cost of all tuition, standard accommodation, most meals, the social and cultural programme, and full use of the facilities at the University of Edinburgh’s library and the National Library of Scotland. 


Please note the Fellowship does not include travel expenses or spending money. Recipients are asked to give a one-hour translation seminar to SUISS students interested in translation. 


Applications for this Fellowship are invited from professional translators with an interest in 20th century and contemporary Scottish writing. 


Further information can be found on the SUISS website at www.suiss.ed.ac.uk, which also contains the facility to download an application form. The closing date for applications is 27th March 2017.
