EAAS Postgraduate Travel Grants

Postgraduate students in the Humanities and Social Sciences who are registered for a higher research degree at any European university, and are members of an American Studies association belonging to EAAS may apply. Two kinds of grants are available: the Transatlantic Grant and the Intra-European Grant.  The maximum single award granted may amount to EUR 2,000.

The Transatlantic Grant will permit the holder to conduct research which illuminates a particular area of American Studies in a designated university, independent research organization or archive in the United States.

The term of the grant will be between three weeks (minimum) and eight weeks (maximum). Successful applicants will receive a grant intended to cover round trip travel and some of the living expenses. Only students registered for a Ph.D. are eligible to apply for the Transatlantic Grants.

The Intra-European Grant will allow the recipient to conduct research for a period of up to four weeks in an American Studies Center or university library or archive in Europe. Graduate students who are registered either for a Ph. D. or a Master's degree by research are eligible to apply for Intra-European Grants.

Applications must be made on the official form and should include written confirmation from the host institution that the researcher will have access to the necessary resource materials, and a letter from the student's academic supervisor. Applicants will be required to supply a detailed estimate of the cost of their visit, including the cost of travel, subsistence, and incidentals. They should also state the minimum amount of money needed to make the trip possible. Applicants are encouraged to seek supporting or matching funding wherever possible.
Grant recipients will be responsible for making their own arrangements for travel and accommodation. Travel must be completed within twelve months of the grantee being notified of the award.

Grantees are required to submit a report to the EAAS within thirty days of returning from their research visit. Obviously the report should include the grantees' institution and destination. For technical reasons please limit the file to 1024 Ko.

The reports are accessible from the bottom of this page.

The application deadline (receipt of the application) for the current round is Sunday, 26 March 2017. You may download the Application Form as a Word file (54 KB) or a PDF file (101 KB).

Please send the completed Travel Grant Application Form including:
  1. an estimated budget,
  2. a recommendation letter from academic supervisor,
  3. a letter of confirmation from the host institution

to Professor Pawel Frelik, Vice-President of the EAAS, by e-mail attachment to vice-president@eaas.eu.
