ECER Bursaries 2011

EERA awards financial support to promising new researchers from Low GDP countries to enable them to attend the ECER Conference. ECER Conference Bursaries, which are awarded to 20 emerging researchers, consist of 500 euro towards travel and accommodation expenses and free entry to the Main Conference. This year, Sage Publishing kindly supported one of these bursaries. EERA-funded Conference Bursaries were awarded to doctoral students, and the Sage Conference Bursary was awarded to a new researcher who has recently completed his/her PhD.

EERA received a record number of applications in 2011. Following lengthy deliberation, the selection committee chose the following researchers as bursary recipients. The winners, who are all presenting during the ECER Emerging Researchers' Conference, will be honoured in the Opening Ceremony of the ERC on September 12.
