The Austrian Cultural Forum New York (ACFNY), the Austrian Federal Ministry for Science and Research (BMWF), and the German Studies Association (GSA) are happy to announce this year's special travel fund in Austrian Studies for scholars who will participate in this year's conference of the German Studies Association in Denver, Colorado from 3 to 6 October.
Preference will be shown to applications from scholars working in Contemporary Austrian Studies (since 1945). The funds are intended exclusively for scholars who are either completing an appropriate advanced degree or who have completed that degree within the past five years. Scholars from North America (Canada, Mexico, and the United States) as well as from outside North America are eligible to apply for these funds. North Americans are eligible to receive US $500 to offset travel costs (within the United States) to attend the GSA. Participants from outside North America are eligible to receive a stipend of US $1,000 for the same purpose.
Travel grants are for one person only and cannot be split among several applicants. Applications from Austria and elsewhere are encouraged, and must be submitted to Mag. Andreas Stadler, Director of the ACFNY, no later than May 31, 2013. Applications should send an abstract of the paper for the GSA and the CV of the applicant. The winners will be announced by June 28, 2013, and will receive their grant directly from the Austrian Cultural Forum New York.
