AUSTRIAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION 2015 YOUNG SCHOLAR TRAVEL GRANTS

March 26-29, 2015

The ACFNY is happy to announce that there will be limited funds available to support selected young Austrian Studies scholars who will participate in next year’s conference of the Austrian Studies Association at the University of Michigan-Dearborn March 26-29, 2015.

Only applications from scholars working in Contemporary Austrian Studies (since 1945) will be considered. Applicants must not be older than 35 years and must not have received any travel grant from the ACFNY in the past. The funds are intended for Austrian Studies scholars who are either completing an appropriate advanced degree or who have completed that degree within the past three years. Austrian Studies scholars from North America (Canada, Mexico, and the United States) as well as from outside North America are eligible to apply for these funds.

Depending on the number of accepted applications and budgetary circumstances, the travel grant comprises $ 500 (for scholars from North America) and $ 1000 (for scholars from outside North America) to offset travel costs. Travel grants are for one person only and cannot be split among several applicants.

Applications must be submitted to the Austrian Cultural Forum New York/ACFNY

(desk(at)acfny.org) no later than 1 December 2014. “Young Scholars Travel Grants ASA” should be in the subject line.

Applications should send an abstract of the paper which they submitted to the ASA, the acceptance e-mail from the Conference Committee, and a curriculum vitae.

Successful applicants will be informed by February 2015.

Grants will be awarded in person at the Austrian Studies Association Conference in Dearborn.
