18th EASA Biennial Conference
EASA2024: Doing and Undoing with Anthropology
University of Barcelona, 23-26 July 2024.

Funding

The deadline for applications was 2 April, we will endeavor to make and communicate decisions by 23 April 2024.

Through a generous award from the Wenner-Gren Foundation, supplemented by EASA money, funds are available to support delegate attendance. The funds are for both online and face-to-face (F2F) delegates.

The rules and criteria for application are straightforward:

  • ALL applications must be submitted via the online form.
  • Applicants should not seek 'double-funding' (i.e. if you already have full funding from another source, you are ineligible). Our aim is to support those who only have partial funding from another source or have no funding at all.
  • Requests for funding may cover registration (online & F2F delegates) and accommodation and travel (for F2F delegates), but NOT membership subscriptions nor the conference dinner.
  • In order to support the most number of delegates, only partial funding will be provided to all successful applicants, not full funding.
  • Only those earning 1200 EUR or less net income (including any complementary income or other funding received this year; and = after any tax has been deducted) per month may apply.
  • Funding for delegates will be prioritised in this order: (1) early career researchers; (2) those convening a panel/ lab or presenting a paper/ film; (3) long-term EASA members.
  • Demonstration of other partial sources of funds by the applicant will not deter the committee from allocating funding support to the applicant, should they meet the eligibility criteria.
  • Please keep your 'other information' concise. Details about your paper, how important this conference is to your career, etc. are not helpful. Keep to facts regarding alternate sources of funding, how much funding would be helpful to you etc.
  • If you make a mistake, please do not resubmit, but email conference(at)easaonline.org

 

Online delegates:
Funding awarded will be allocated as a registration fee waiver in our system, meaning you will either pay nothing for registration or a discounted registration fee. Please do not pay your registration fee until you hear the funding results.

F2F delegates:
The initial portion of funding will be allocated as a registration fee waiver in our system; any allocation exceeding that will be remitted to recipients' bank accounts on receipt of electronic receipts for travel and accommodation. Successful applicants must pay their costs up-front and submit receipts in order to be refunded ahead of time or at the conference. (An inability to pay up-front should not discourage you from applying for funds as exceptions can be made in cases where this is not possible.)

Conditions of funding:
If an online funded delegate cannot attend, their fee waiver will be removed and provided to another eligible candidate. If a F2F funded delegate is unable to attend the conference, they may be asked to return the full sum, if the circumstances merit it. Receipts are required in order to receive funding. These are the conditions accepted in applying for the funds.

With the continued economic downturn and deterioration in institutional funding, we envisage competition will be huge: we are likely to receive 2-4 times the number of applications we can assist. Applications have a greater chance of success if the amount requested is low or just for registration fee waivers, as we would like to help as many delegates as possible.
