EATS Library Grant 2016

Download Application Details

It is our pleasure to announce EATS Library Grant for the year 2016. Only EATS members are eligible. Recipients will be given the opportunity to travel to a library within Europe to conduct a short research stay in the period between 1 April and 31 December 2016. Grants will be allocated up to 500 euro maximum per person, depending on the number of received applications.

Application Guidelines:
Please submit to EATS Board at eatstaiwan@gmail.com (c.c. Dr Sasa Istenic at sistenic@gmail.com) a short proposal that includes the following:

  1. Research outline (title and description of maximum 1 page of A4)
  2. Details of the selected library that has Taiwan related collection and relevance to your research (please state the location of the library and offer a brief introduction to the materials you intend to look at. For example, archival records, newspapers, digital materials, etc.). We particularly welcome applications for libraries outside the London area.
  3. Duration of stay (up to 2 weeks)
  4. Budget (including travel and accommodation fees)

Please make sure that you have obtained the necessary forms and permissions to access the library. We are not responsible for this. However we will provide you with a letter of grant acceptance for you to use as proof. The grant is open to Master students, PhD candidates and junior researchers (who are within three years of having submitted their PhD thesis but are not in a full-time lectureship). The grant only covers travel within Europe. It is not applicable to library research outside of Europe, i.e. Taiwan, USA, New Zealand, and so on. Successful applicants must use the grant by 31 December 2016.

Upon completion we would like to receive a report and the travel documents to show proof of your research stay. Please also acknowledge the support of EATS Library Grant in subsequent research papers and publications.

Application deadline extended to 1 March 2016
Final results will be announced during the 2016 EATS Conference. Recipients will be informed by email by 1 April 2016.
