26.05.2022 12:41 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The ECREA Young Scholars Network (YECREA) and ECREA invite applications for 12 ECC 2022 grants for young scholars who are ECREA PhD members and are accepted to present at ECC.

At least 5 out of the 12 grants will go to soft-currency ECREA PhD members;

  • Grant for regular ECREA PhD members: conference fee waiver + max €350 reimbursement towards travel/accommodation;
  • Grant for soft-currency ECREA PhD members: conference fee waiver + max €450 reimbursement towards travel/accommodation;

Deadline for application: June 25th, 2022.

The grants are intended for YECREA members (visit to learn how to become a YECREA member) in order to support access to the academic community of media and communication scholars by attending ECREA’s biannual conference from 19th to 22nd October 2022 in Aarhus, Denmark. The ECC 2022 grants include a waiver for the conference fee and partial reimbursement for costs of travel and accommodation.

Grant awards will be made based on several criteria, of which the most important is the applicants’ access to financial resources (e.g. from their home university, third-party funded projects or national funding institutions). The grants will be awarded only to early-career scholars whose presentation has been accepted to the programme of the conference. The applications will not be reviewed in terms of academic quality. However, applicants should preferably have submitted abstracts as first authors to the ECC conference programme.

The grants will be provided as reimbursements. The relevant claim form, digitised invoices and receipts documenting actual costs must be submitted electronically to in addition to the submission of the original documents posted to the ECREA accountants: RSM Belgium, Lozenberg, 22 b3, B1932 Zaventem, Belgium. The applicant will be reimbursed up to the amount of the subsidy that was granted to the particular applicant.
