ARCHON encourages PhD and RMA students to attend and speak at conferences abroad. Therefore we can annually award conference subsidies to RMA and PhD students. The criterion for receiving the subsidy is the presentation of a paper or poster at an international conference abroad.
You can apply for this subsidy by sending a motivation letter (in PDF format) to the ARCHON office. Please state why you think you should receive the subsidy and why it is of importance you present at the international conference. Also, provide us with the invitation to the international conference and an overview of the total budget for travel and attendance costs.
Awarded subsidy amounts may vary according to the provided documentation, but will generally be constrained to under €400. There is no set number of subsidies awarded, but budget constraints keep the number limited to about 8 per year.
Applications are received throughout the year. However, decision and notification is restricted to the two cut-off moments (June 1 and December 1).
The June deadline is intended for conferences taking place in the fall, the December deadline for spring conferences.
Please note that ARCHON conference funding is restricted to registered student members of ARCHON.
