Peter Mair Award

The Peter Mair Memorial Award will fund the travel of two young scholars to attend the APSA meeting. Named in memory of Professor Peter Mair, one of the foremost scholars of European politics, the award is meant explicitly to enable young scholars of European politics without adequate funding to present a paper in one of the panels organized by the EPS section. First-time APSA-attendants who are graduate students or junior professors from underfunded European universities (notably in the East and South) are prioritized, but senior scholars from such institutions as well as junior scholars from underfunded non-European universities (including the US) are also considered. Applicants are expected to also apply to all other travel funds they are eligible for, including their department/university, national science foundations, and the APSA Travel Fund. The Awards are set at a maximum of $1,000 each, but partial/matching funding is possible too (and could lead to a larger number of grants). Applications for the Peter Mair Memorial Award should include: Name, position, and academic affiliation; Title of proposed paper and EPS-Panel it was submitted to; Letter from Head of Department confirming that there are no/not sufficient university funds; List of other funding agencies you have applied to; Indicate whether this would be your first APSA attendance

*Send your application materials directly to the 2018 award committee.
