Dear Willard and HUMANIST,

A kind reader alerted us to the fact that in our announcement for the 
student support awards for the Balisage conference this year, we 
neglected to update the deadline from last year's date.

Students seeking support this year have until April 8, 2011 (the same 
day papers are due) to submit applications. They are not already almost 
a year late.

With apologies,
