The CUTG invites applications for two travelling scholarships of up to £250/€350 each, intended to assist postgraduate members in travelling abroad to carry out research for their thesis or give a paper directly related to their area of study. The scholarships are intended to contribute to the costs of reasonable and necessary travel and/or accommodation. The deadline for applications is 29 June 2007. If unsuccessful the first time, applicants may re-submit their application in the following round. No further re-submissions will be accepted. The following criteria of eligibility apply: • Applicants must be a fully paid-up member of the CUTG at least from the submission of the application to the time of payment of the scholarship. It is the responsibility of applicants to ensure that their membership has been approved before their application is submitted. • Applicants must be registered at a university in Great Britain or Ireland for a PhD on a topic related to German Studies. • Postgraduate students based abroad or already carrying out research abroad are ineligible to apply. An application statement of no more than 250 words as a MS Word document should be emailed as an attachment to the Hon. Treasurer Dr Jim Jordan ([log in to unmask]). It should contain the following details: • The name and contact details of the applicant. • The applicant’s PhD thesis topic or title; the institution at which it is registered; and the full name of the supervisor(s). • Details of the research or paper, its relevance to the applicant’s thesis and the timing of the trip. • A costed breakdown of the items for which the applicant is seeking support. • Details of any other funding for the trip which the applicant has applied for or obtained. Applicants should note that the CUTG encourages them also to seek funding from other bodies. Applicants will be informed of the Committee’s decision within two months of the deadline.Successful applicants will receive their scholarship at that time. Scholarship holders are required to supply to the Treasurer within three months of the completion of their trip a report on the visit of no more than 200 words, along with any relevant receipts or documentation, or copies thereof. The report must also be submitted as an email attachment, and it may be uploaded to the CUTG website. If scholarship holders take any digital pictures they feel might enhance the website, they are welcome to submit these also! Scholarships will be awarded at the discretion of the CUTG Committee, which retains the right to apply further criteria of selection and eligibility.
