The European Association for American Studies
Scholars-at-Risk Grant Program
The European Association for American Studies announces a new 15,000 EUR Scholars-at-Risk grant program. We will be offering grants of up to 2,000 EUR to scholars working within the field of American Studies who find themselves in conditions of precarity of political or humanitarian nature in their country of work or of citizenship. Given the life-threatening nature of the war, in the 2022 edition of the grant, priority will be given to scholars with Ukrainian citizenship.
The grant is intended to cover expenses related to travel and research stay at a foreign institution or related to home-based digital access to archives and other scholarly materials.
To apply for the EAAS Scholars-at-Risk Grant, an applicant needs to fill in this application form, describing their proposed projects which can be related to their research, teaching at a university in one of European countries and aiming at establishing new academic initiatives between the grantee and their host university in Europe. The application has to include an estimated budget. Applicants seeking travel grants to foreign institutions are expected to submit an invitation issued by the host institution abroad; applicants seeking funds for a home-based digital access to archives and other materials, are expected to submit a recommendation letter from their home institution.
EAAS cannot help the applicants in arranging visas for the countries in which their host institution is.
An applicant can apply for this scholarship once per year.
The grants will be awarded three times per year. The deadlines for applications for 2022 are: June 30, September 1, November 15.
You can download the application form as a PDF document here.
