Young scholars, members of YECREA and ECREA can now apply for conference fee funding to attend the 5th European Communication Conference in Lisbon, 12-15 November 2014.
The newly established young scholars’ fund, provided by ECREA, consists in an initiative of ECREA scholars aiming to facilitate young colleagues’ participation in the bi-annual European Communication Conference (ECC) in the form of fee waivers.
Applicants need to ensure that they are:
- young scholars’ according to YECREA’s definition (master students, PhD students and post-doc scholars without fixed or tenure-track positions)
- members of ECREA and YECREA
- authors of a submission officially accepted to be presented at the ECC
- not receiving any other funding resources
Young scholars who are eligible for funding have to submit an application stating the title of the accepted submission (including specification of other co-authors, if any), country and institution of affiliation, student status (master or PhD student, post-doc or research fellow etc.), statement that they are not receiving any other funding resources as well as indication of their travel costs to the conference site.
All applicants are asked to complete and submit the form, together with supporting evidence (including estimated travel and accommodation costs, proof of enrolment/student status, confirmation of acceptance to present at ECC2014) to the YECREA management team via firstname.lastname@example.org before 1 September 2014.
All applicants will be notified two weeks after this deadline. Successful applicants that have already paid fees will be reimbursed by ECREA.
