EASR Bursaries

Bursaries for the 2021 EASR conference in Pisa

From August 30th to September 3rd, the EASR conference will take place in Pisa.  As usual, the EASR will offer a bursary program to its members.

The bursaries are meant for participants who present a paper at the conference and participate on site but are not able to cover the costs of travel, accommodation, and registration fee from other sources. In order to be eligible, candidates have to be either members of a paid-up member association of the EASR or paid-up individual members. Preference will be given to non-tenured candidates in an early stage of their career, candidates who did not receive an EASR bursary in the past years, and candidates from countries with weaker economies.

In 2021, the EASR will grant up to 9 bursaries of up to a maximum of €400 each. The reimbursement will take place only after the conference and upon presentation of a scan of the original documents. Note that this year, due to the exceptional circumstances concerning the pandemic situation, applicants do not need to “show evidence of having sought funding from other available associations” (see EASR Bursary Guidelines: 4b). All decisions pertaining to funding will be made by a committee composed of the President, General Secretary and Treasurer of the EASR, or of their respective deputies.

Applications for bursaries will be valid if received by the deadline of July 12, 2021, 23:59 (Pisa time). The applications are being submitted through an online application form at https://www.easr.eu/bursaries/bursaries-application-form/. The applicants will be notified about the outcome via e-mail no later than July 26, 2021. The conference is planned as a hybrid event at this point, and the bursary only supports on-site participation. Should the conference become online-only due to unforeseen circumstances, which would mean that the bursary recipients have to present their papers online, the bursary can still cover the costs already incurred and proven by original documents (e.g., tickets purchased before the announcement was sent by the conference organizers). Any other changes will be assessed on a case-per-case basis.

Before applying, please read the EASR Bursary Guidelines at https://www.easr.eu/bursaries/bursaries-guidelines/ and consider whether you are eligible. If you have any further questions, please contact the EASR Deputy Treasurer, Dr. David Zbíral, at treasurer@easr.eu.
