The Austrian Cultural Forum New York (ACFNY) and the GSA are happy to announce that there will be limited funds available to support selected young Austrian Studies scholars participating in the 2018 GSA conference.
Applicants must not be older than 35 years and must not have received any travel grant from the ACFNY in the past. Applicants who receive financial support from other governmental Austrian institutions to cover travel and accommodation costs will not be considered.
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 as well as from outside North America are eligible to apply for these funds. Austrian citizenship or residency in Austria is not necessary. Applications from scholars working in contemporary Austrian Studies (since 1945) will be given preferential treatment.
Depending on the number of accepted applications and budgetary circumstances, the travel grant consists of up to $400 (for scholars from North America) and up to $800 (for scholars from outside North America) to offset travel costs.
Applications must be submitted to the Austrian Cultural Forum New York/ACFNY (firstname.lastname@example.org), no later than 15th May 2018. Applicants should send both an abstract of the paper which they submitted to the GSA and a curriculum vitae. Successful applicants will be informed by 15th June 2018.
The grants will be awarded in person at the GSA conference. Stipends will be paid in check or transferred to an Austrian bank account (Austrian residents and holders of bank accounts in Austria only).
