ETP Scholarship Fund:
To support broad participation in the European Theatre Perspectives symposium — to be held on 7–9 November, within the Theatre Olympics and European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016 programmes — the symposium organizers have established a fund totalling 10,000 Polish złoty (PLN), to help individuals contribute to and present their work at the event.
The fund will provide assistance with travel and accommodation costs for 5–10 symposium participants, who are in the early stage of their careers, have limited opportunities for travel, or who require additional financial support in order to attend.
The application process is open to anyone responding to the symposium Call for Proposals (CFP), who is in one or more of the following categories:
- Early career researcher: an individual currently enrolled in a doctoral programme or who was awarded a doctorate not more than five years before the CFP closing date.
- Early career practitioner: an individual who began their career in the arts, or was awarded an MFA or equivalent, not more than seven years before the CFP closing date.
- An individual, at any career stage, who has not previously attended a research event outside their home country.
- An individual, at any career stage, based in a low- or middle-income country.
- An individual, at any career stage, who would not otherwise have sufficient funds to attend, and is able to make a particular case for assistance.
How to apply:
All individuals wishing to apply to the fund should submit a proposal, as detailed in the CFP, along with:
- A short biographical note (100–200 words).
- A case for subvention, including details of eligibility and the prospective academic or professional benefits to the applicant of participating in the symposium (100–250 words).
- Contact details of two referees who are able to provide a letter of recommendation if requested.
These documents should be sent all together, as MS Word or PDF attachments, to the symposium convenors at firstname.lastname@example.org, by the end of Monday 8 August 2016.
Applications will be assessed by a Scholarship Review Committee formed of the event organizers and a panel of subject specialists in the field.
The fund will be used to support as many applicants as possible, up to the maximum of 10. Full or partial scholarships may be offered, according to need and to formal evaluation of the respective applications. Eligible costs to be covered include transport to and from Wrocław (at the lowest fare available, from the applicant’s nearest airport or station) and accommodation (in a budget hotel or apartment, from 6–9 November 2016). All bookings will be made directly by the event organizers. Successful applicants will be responsible for arranging any required visa.
