The ECREA Young Scholars Network (YECREA) and ECREA invites applications for two grants for doctoral students participating in the ECREA European Media and Communication Doctoral Summer School 2017.
|Tomanic Trivundza, Ilija 22.02.2017|
The grants are intended to encourage and support PhD candidates with limited economic support and with limited opportunities to participate in international academic events. The grants will be awarded to two students who have applied and have been accepted to the summer school.
Each grant is in the amount of 800€ and will cover:
If selected students are not members of ECREA through their institutions, the grant will also include one year free individual ECREA membership.
*Please note that students who receive ECREA grants will not be eligible for travel refund from the Summer School organisers.
Applicants are expected to complete and submit the application form in which they will be asked about their financial and institutional background as well as a motivation letter.
You can download grant application here.
In the motivation letter, students should especially specify the reasons for why they should be awarded a grant. The focus should be placed on the stability of the doctoral position (financial support, time given to complete the PhD, etc.), the academic support (in terms of supervision and opportunities for structured feedback), international academic exposure, and all other topics that might seem relevant to the applicant.
To apply, please send the completed form and motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 April 2017. For further questions, please use the same contact address. The selected applicants will be notified by 15 May 2017. If no grants will be awarded, the call may be repeated for students that were accepted to Summer School in late May 2017.
