For the Digital Humanities 2010 conference, the European Science Foundation (ESF) has generously awarded funding for bursaries to enable young European researchers to attend the conference. We are delighted to announce that four bursaries have been awarded for the conference. See ESF Bursary Winners.
The awards are administered by the Awards Committee of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO), operating within the framework specified by the ESF. The Commmittee has agreed the following terms for the ESF Bursary Awards:
The awards may be used to cover: the relevant conference fee; travel (including travel to and from an airport); and subsistence. Subsistence includes up to 41 GBP per night accommodation costs (this is the cost of the student apartments available for conference delegates), and a daily allowance of 20 GBP for incidental expenses.
In addition, award winners will be invited to attend the conference dinner free of charge as guests of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO), and a formal presentation of an award certificate will be made there.
Award winners are strongly encouraged to attend the pre-conference workshops on Mon 5 and Tue 6 July. Costs for 7 nights in the student accommodation (or equivalent) and 8 days of the 20 GBP subsistence are therefore allowable for the period Sun 4 - Sun 11 July. Note that accommodation costs are payable only for award winners not resident in the host city or registered at the host institution of the Conference.
Award winners who are presenting papers or posters are required to include the ESF logo and the following statement in their paper or poster:
'Support from the Standing Committee for the Humanities (SCH) of the European Science Foundation made the presentation of this paper/poster possible (http://www.esf.org/human)'.
Award winners will be required to provide receipts for all travel costs (lowest economy class fare, plus cheapest travel to and from airports) and for accommodation costs (to a maximum of 41 GBP per night if the student accommodation is not booked). The maximum total award is 1,000 EURO.
It is a condition of the ESF awards that award winners submit a written report. This is to include: a brief CV; a short description of the conference/workshop topics and highlights; their own views on the scientific presentations and discussions; the personal/professional benefits they have gained and will gain in the near future from their participation in the event, especially in terms of new collaboration and new goals/achievements; and, finally, whether they feel that any highlights, cutting-edge research or neglected areas were identified which need attention at the European level. Both the report and the complete set of receipts must be submitted in order to receive the reimbursement of expenditure.
The European Science Foundation (ESF) provides a platform for its Member Organisations to advance science and explore new directions for research at the European level.
Established in 1974 as an independent non-governmental organisation, the ESF currently serves 80 Member Organisations across 30 countries.
