Palatium : Court Residences as places of exchange in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe 1400 - 1700

Grants

PALATIUM offers grants to junior scholars who want to participate in its events. These travel grants are especially meant to encourage early-career researchers to actively take part in PALATIUM workshops or conferences that are held in a foreign country. The application procedure and selection criteria are in accordance with ESF rules for Short Visit Grants. This means that:

  • Applicants may be pre-doctoral or post-doctoral researchers.
  • Grants are available only for travel from one European country to another. The applicant’s country of origin must be different from the country hosting the event (e.g. researchers residing in Spain cannot apply for a grant to participate in an event in Madrid).
  • Grants cover actual travel expenses (up to a maximum of 500 EUR), plus a per diem allowance of 85 EUR per day (for the duration of the event).
  • Payment of the grant will be made after the visit, subject to the submission of a short scientific report and of the original travel tickets.

To see for which events grants are currently available, see the Call for Applications.
