Outreach support and travel grants
The submission of grants applications has been closed on 10th February 2012.
All applicants will receive in a few days a communication about their request.
Applications for travel grants are invited only from students and scholars with an accepted paper (not necessarily IMS members). The applicant must study or be enrolled in an Institutional, University or Conservatoire programme related to musicology.
The applicant has to provide a minimum of 20% of the travel cost. Applications will be selected by a committee formed by members of the conference scientific and organizing committees. The amount of each grant will be decided by the committee and will be based on the number of the applications accepted and upon an itemized estimate of all of the applicant’s meeting-related expenses. Applicants younger than 35 years of age and/or coming from countries where there are difficulties to obtain funding from the usual sources, will have priority.
Applications must include:
- paper’s title and contact details of the applicant
- a complete curriculum vitae specifying eventual publications, projects, employments in which she/he has been involved
- the amount requested for travel from the country of origin to Rome based on a cheap flight rate (other costs will be determined by the grant committee on the basis of local hotel and restaurant rates)
The application has to be submitted no later than 10th February 2012 by email at info @ ims2012.net (preferred option) or by fax at: +39 06.80242306
We would like to enable as many people as possible to attend the conference. Unfortunately, there are countries where researcher and students are unable to obtain funding from the usual sources, and the IMS Outreach Fund on its own cannot meet the demand. These colleagues always make a great contribution to the conference, so you are invited to make a donation to help them attend. Donors are acknowledged in the official conference programme. If you are able to make a donation, however small, please fill in the box on the registration form. Thank you in advance.
