Funding applications for Standing Group activities taking place in 2019 are now open. Each Standing Group may apply for a Summer School grant of up to €4,000 per annum. This can be to either run an ECPR Standing Group Summer School, or to sponsor a Summer School organised by an external organisation closely linked to your area of research. In addition, all Standing Groups are eligible to apply for a Major Activity Grant every three years. The grant is designed to facilitate a large-scale event or activity such as a Workshop or mentoring programme, or to launch a Standing Group Conference. The deadline for applications is 30 September 2018. Please send us your expressions of interest by 16 September at the latest so that we can assist you with the paperwork.
