Possibility of financial support

ESSLLI offers no financial support to participants, but tries to find various funding sources for students to apply to. We list these sources on this page:

  • (Call for applications closed!) ESSLLI is an ASL-sponsored event. As a consequence, all student participants who are members of the Association for Symbolic Logic can apply for a modest travel grant.

    To be considered for a Travel Award, please (1) send a letter of application, and (2) ask your thesis supervisor to send a brief recommendation letter. The application letter should be brief (preferably one page) and should include: (1) your name; (2) your home institution; (3) your thesis supervisor's name; (4) a one-paragraph description of your studies and work in logic, and, in the case of an ASL student member application to attend an ASL or ASL-sponsored meeting other than the Annual Meeting or European Summer Meeting, a paragraph indicating why it is important to attend the meeting; (5) your estimate of the travel expenses you will incur; (6) (for citizens or residents of the USA) citizenship or visa status; and (7) (voluntary) indication of your gender and minority status. Women and members of minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply. In addition to funds provided by the ASL, the program of travel grants to the ASL Annual Meeting and the European Summer Meeting is supported by a grant from the US National Science Foundation; NSF funds may be awarded only to students at USA universities and to citizens and permanent residents of the USA. Air travel paid for using NSF funds must be on a US flag carrier. Application by email is encouraged; put "ASL travel application'' in the subject line of your message.

    The deadline was 5 May 2008. No further applications are possible! Applications were to be sent to the ASL Business Office: ASL, Box 742, Vassar College, 124 Raymond Avenue, Poughkeepsie, New York 12604, USA; Fax: 1-845-437-7830; email: Decisions will be communicated at least two months prior to ESSLLI 2008. More information can be found at the ASL student travel award page.

  • (Call for applications closed!) The ESSLLI organizers intend to apply for a DFG Osteuropa grant for participants at the ESSLLI workshops. This grant (if the application is successful) would allow us to give up to 19 grants of € 515 to participants from central and eastern European countries.

    2. Plan to participate in at least one of the ESSLLI workshops, preferably as a speaker (preference will be given to those participants who speak in at least one of the workshops).

    The deadline was 13 April 2008. No further applications are possible. The ESSLLI organizers have selected 19 candidates and applied for an Osteuropa grant for these candidates. If successful, each candidate will receive a grant of € 515. It should be stressed that there is no guarantee that the application will be successful.
