The Czech Association for Urban Studies (ČSUS) in close co-operation with The European Association for Urban History (EAUH) will award a limited number of bursaries to support participation at the 13th International Conference of Urban History “Reinterpreting Cities”, which will take place in 24th – 27th August 2016 in Helsinki. The conference is organized by EAUH.
Bursary provision is in compliance with objectives of ČSUS, which include the promotion of urban studies in the Czech Republic and cooperation of ČSUS with EAUH. The purpose of the bursaries is to motivate scholars to take part at the conference and to enable their attendance.
Eligible for the bursaries are applicants who fulfill the following criteria:
– The applicant is active participant of the conference, i.e. she or he will present paper that was accepted by the session or round-table organizers, or will co-organize a session.
– The applicant will attend the conference in person.
– The priority will be given to students and young scholars who are affiliated to universities in the Czech Republic and have no grants or universities which would be able to pay the costs for them.
– The citizens of the organizing country are not eligible.
– The bursaries that are provided by ČSUS cannot be combined with the bursaries granted by International Committee of EAUH.
The selected applicants will be provided with the bursary of the total amount of 13.000 CZK. It is mandatory that the bursary will be primarily used for paying the conference registration fee. The rest of the bursary must be used for the travel expenses related to the travel to the conference site and/or for covering the accommodation during the conference.
The bursary will be granted retrospectively after the conference against confirmation of attendance and other documents that will prove the use of the bursary for the conference attendance and indicate the costs: e.g. boarding-pass and invoice indicating the cost of the air-ticket; hotel invoice, etc.
The bursaries will be selected by the ad hoc committee comprising representatives of EAUH International Committee, ČSUS committee, and external experts.
