Peter Mair Travel Award
Awards up to two travel funds annually to enable 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 alternative 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.
Deadline for nominations: 3 weeks after Annual Meeting acceptances go out
