ECER Conference Bursaries

EERA and the Emerging Researchers’ Group (ERG) will grant a number of bursaries for ERC and ECER 2021 for postgraduate students and emerging researchers in order to allow them to participate in this year’s Emerging Researchers’ Conference (ERC) and European Conference on Educational Research (ECER) which will be held as an online event.

The Two Types of Bursary Funds

    This Bursary includes: free entry to ERC and ECER 2021.
  2. Bursaries for students and recent graduates who are nationals of low GDP countries outside Europe (including those from low GDP countries studying in high GDP countries)
    This Bursary includes: free entry to ERC and ECER 2021.

Terms and Conditions

  • Only authors of proposals that were submitted to and are accepted for presentation at the Emerging Researchers' Conference will be awarded the bursary.
  • Only one bursary (including the one free ERC/ECER entry) will be awarded per proposal. Therefore, if co-authors apply and both are awarded a bursary, they would have to decide amongst themselves how they would share the single award.
  • Former bursary winners will not be considered.
  • Bursary applicants need to be prepared to attend both ERC and ECER.
  • All bursary winners are expected to contribute a blog post on a topic of their choice for the EERA Blog: https://blog.eera-ecer.de/ and submission guidelines can be found here: https://blog.eera-ecer.de/submission-guidelines/
