Conference Subsidy Program

Conference Subsidy Programme 2018

 

 

The Verein für Socialpolitik promotes an international presence of young scientists with a subsidy of 500 € for presentations at prestigious international conferences.  The lecture subsidies have been financed by donations provided by the Deutsche Bundesbank and the Schweizerische Nationalbank. The lecture subsidies are allocated once a year, always in November, and a commitment for a subsidy is not possible before that date. 

To be eligible to receive a subsidy, you must meet the following conditions:

 

  1. You must fulfill the eligibility requirements listed below.
  2. You must submit an application.
  3. Your application must be approved.

 

1. Eligibility for subsidies

 

To be eligible, the following criteria must be met:

 

  1. The applicant is a member of the Verein für Socialpolitik and has paid the membership fee for this year.
  2. The applicant meets the requirements to pay the reduced fee.
  3. The programme is for members of the Verein für Socialpolitik  that work or are enrolled at an academic institution in Germany, Austria or Switzerland as a doctoral student, a post doc or pursue a habilitation.
  4. A lecture was given this year at an international conference.
  5. In the current year, the applicant has not received any other lecture subsidy from the Verein für Socialpolitik yet.
  6. One author can receive funds only once for the presentation of a paper. If the same author presents another paper, this paper presentation is separately eligible for funding, if the presentation does not take place at the same conference. Presentations of the same paper by a co-author are also separately eligible for funding.

 

2. Application Procedure

 

Download the writable PDF application (Bewerbung fuer eine Vortragspraemie) and send it completed to the office of the Verein für Socialpolitik by 31st October of the year in which the lecture is held.

The decisive factor here is the date of receipt of the completed application. However, if the conference will take place after October 31st, the application may be submitted in the following year.

 

In order for the application to be processed, the following documentation must be complete and submitted together:

  • The completed application form;
  • The complete script of the proposed presentation; and
  • A confirmation that the lecture was actually held (e.g. copy of the invitation or program on which the lecture is confirmed and signed by the session chair)

 

Please note that only complete applications will be considered.
