EASR Bursaries

Bursaries for the 2024 EASR conference in Gothenburg, Sweden

The 2024 EASR annual international conference will take place from August 19-23 in Gothenburg, Sweden. As in other years, EASR bursaries will be available to attend this conference. The bursaries are meant for participants who present a paper at the conference but are not able to cover the costs of travel, accommodation, and registration fee. Candidates have to be members of a paid-up association affiliated to the EASR or have to be paid-up individual members. Preference will be given to candidates from countries with weaker economies, non-tenured candidates in the early stages of their career, and candidates who did not receive bursaries in the past years.

For 2024, an amount of €3.600 has been made available by the EASR and € 2.000  by the International Association for the History of Religions (IAHR). The total sum will be divided into fourteen bursaries of up to a maximum of €400 each. All decisions pertaining to the selection of bursary candidates will be made by a committee composed of the President, General Secretary and Treasurer of the EASR, or of their respective deputies if necessary. For questions you can send an e-mail to the EASR Treasurer, Kim Knibbe (treasurer@easr.eu).

Applications for bursaries to attend the 2024 EASR conference at Gothenborg, Sweden will be valid if received on or before the deadline of April 17, 2024. You will be notified of the outcome via e-mail no later than May 19, 2024. Please read the Bursary Guidelines carefully before applying and consider whether you are eligible. If so, apply for the bursary by completing the online Application Form and then clicking on the “Send” button at the end. A letter of recommendation from an officer within a national association of the EASR of which the applicant is a member (cf. EASR Bursary Guidelines) should be sent separately to treasurer@easr.eu.

With all best wishes,
William Arfman, deputy treasurer of the EASR
