British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies Research and Development Committee Application Form for Funding for Postgraduate Research Activities

Postgraduate research students registered in UK institutions (students registered for doctoral or master’s-by-research degrees) may apply for grants for the following purposes:

  • to carry out fieldwork or work in libraries and      archives outside the UK;
  • to attend, for the purpose of presenting a      paper, a conference outside the UK (additional funding is available to      assist postgraduates wishing to attend the Association’s Annual      Conference: see the BASEES website for more details).

Grants made will not exceed £600, and may be less than this. No postgraduate student may receive more than £600 (this sum does not represent an entitlement) from the Research and Development fund over the course of her/his time as a postgraduate student.

You should normally have been a member of BASEES for at least six months before the deadline for submission of your application (1 March, 1 July or 1 October in any given year). Grants may exceptionally be made to applicants who have been members for less than six months, but such grants will normally be reduced pro rata.

Grant recipients will be required to submit a short report to BASEES on completion of the funded work, a summary of which will be published in the BASEES newsletter.
