Each year, the ICOHTEC offers a limited number of grants for graduates, post-graduates and young researchers who intend to give their papers at its Annual Symposium and/or participate in the Summer School. The Grants will be made available largely thanks to a generous support from Juanelo Turriano Foundation and the Division of History of Science and Technology (DHST).
Who is eligible?
In 2018, the ICOHTEC Travel Grants will be awarded in two categories:
Up to 350 Euro each – eligible for applying are graduates, post-graduates and young scholars whose papers have been accepted to the scientific programme of our 2018 Symposium. Special preference will be given to participants from low-income countries, who are not able to receive sufficient financial support elsewhere. These travel grants are not intended to cover the full costs of attending the Symposium, and may be used to bus/train/ferry/flight tickets, lodging and/or registration fee.
Up to 200 Euro each – eligible for applying are the students and early career researchers participating in the ICOHTEC Summer School in St-Étienne. Students and researchers whose papers have also been accepted to the scientific programme of our 2018 Symposium, following immediately the Summer School, are eligible for the Travel Grant of up to 350 Euro each.
How do I apply?
The Travel Grant Application Form (DOC or PDF) must be filled in, and sent by 16 April 2018 as an e-mail attachment to Sławomir Łotysz, the Chair of the Travel Grant Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to the information provided in the application form, please attach a short CV or bio, as well as an appropriate document proving your status (a scan of your student’s ID or supervisor’s/professor’s letter if applicable). The reimbursement will be made after the accepted paper is presented in person by the Grantee at the Symposium. Please, note that all money transfers can be made only after the symposium. In addition, make sure you saved your original tickets and invoices to hand them over to the Treasurer at the meeting.
What is the time schedule?
The completed applications, along with applicable attachments, should be submitted by e-mail by Monday 16 April. The grants will be announced by mid-May 2018.
