EASP – European Association of Social Psychology

Travel Grants

Travel grants are available for both postgraduate and full members, respectively. Information regarding each is given below.

Postgraduate Member Travel Grants

Purpose

These bursaries are intended to support:

  • Short visits of postgraduate students to departments elsewhere in the world in order to conduct new research, complete ongoing projects, or undergo training in a particular methodology or technology.
  • Participation by postgraduate students in EASP (co)sponsored events, such as meetings, conferences or summer schools.

Eligibility

  • Postgraduate members of the association currently registered for a PhD at a European university.
  • Any member may be awarded a maximum of one travel grant.

Criteria

  • Scientific merit of proposal. Enough details should be provided in the proposal to allow a judgement to be made about the quality of the work envisaged.
  • Academic need and expected academic benefit: Postgraduates from countries/departments which have only limited access to travel funds and whose infrastructure or training facilities are less well developed than elsewhere are especially encouraged to apply.
  • Before making a decision, the EC reserves the right to seek the confidential advice of other members of the Association regarding any particular application. Its decision is final.

Amount

In order to permit an equitable distribution of the funds, any single award will typically not exceed 1000 Euro. This sum may be exceeded under specific and well justified conditions, where no other funds are available.

Application Procedure

The applications should be submitted by email to the Executive Officer (including requested attachments).

Applicants should submit:

  1. A brief (around 1000 words) proposal outlining the purpose and duration of the visit and its anticipated outcomes.
  2. A short letter of support from the applicant’s current supervisor explaining the importance and timeliness of the visit.
  3. A brief letter from the proposed collaborator in the host institution, agreeing to the visit and to providing access to the necessary facilities (not needed for participation in meetings and conferences).
  4. A travel budget, including the likelihood/availability of obtaining alternative sources of financial support.

Full Member Travel Grants

Purpose

These bursaries are intended to support:

  • Short visits of full members to departments elsewhere in the world in order to conduct new research, complete ongoing projects, or undergo training in a particular methodology or technology, or participation in meetings and conferences. We will prioritize activities that promote international networking or collaborations.
