Early Career Grants

The ESHS offers Early Career Grants for PhD students, post-docs or junior scholars (with a maximum of 3 years after completion of PhD) presenting a paper at Bologna 2020 Conference.

Preference is given to those delivering an individual paper. If delivering a joint paper, the grantee has to be the sole speaker.

This year, as Bologna 2020 Conference is taking place virtually, the grant consists of a waiver of the conference registration fee.

Submission of applications for Early Career Grants will open on the 5th of June and will close on the 20th of June 2020.

Applications should be sent by email to ESHS Secretary Simone Turchetti (simone.turchetti@manchester.ac.uk) and must include: 

  •  Short CV (maximum 500 words) with an indication of date of PhD.
  •  Confirmation of acceptance and title of talk to be presented at Bologna 2020.
  •  Short justification on reasons behind application, including a statement that the applicant has no other sources of financial support.

 The awarding of Early Career Grants will be announced on the 30th of June 2020.
