Application guideline for grants within the IPID4ALL program

 

In cooperation with the Bonn Graduate Center, BIGS-OAS attracted funding provided by a DAAD programme named "International promovieren in Deutschland – for all" (IPID4ALL).
We are therefore able to support applications by BIGS-OAS students in two categories: international conference trips and research stays abroad. Additionally, we are able to support international doctorate students pursuing a research stay at the Institute of Oriental and Asian Studies in Bonn.


Due to budget reasons BIGS-OAS won’t be able to consider each application, which is why grants will be awarded after a competitive selection process.
For further details see below.


Conference trips:


What do we fund, grant value
Through IPID4ALL, BIGS-OAS can fund your participation at international conferences and workshops only if you are presenting a paper or a poster. The grant will cover your travel expenses (e.g. flights Germany – destination – Germany; train) as well as your accommodation for two days. The grant is based on fixed rates for travel allowances and per diem (i.e. allowances for accommodation etc. / Tagespauschale) according to the DAAD guidelines (see tables here).

Examples
Conference in France
Travel allowance: 125 €
2 x per diem: 2 x 117 € (for Paris) or 2 x 75 € (for the rest of the country)

Conference in the USA
Travel allowance: 700 € (USA East) or 1,250 € (USA West)
2 x per diem: 2 x 125 € (Boston, New York, Washington) or 2 x 91 € (for the rest of the country)

Conference in Egypt
Travel allowance: 500 €
2 x per diem: 2 x 93 €

Conference in Japan
Travel allowance: 900 €
2 x per diem: 2 x 126 €

The rates are fixed, which means that even if your transportation costs are below the determined rate you will receive the full amount:
Example: You buy a return ticket to Japan for 700 €, you will still receive the full rate of 900 €.
The same applies to the per diem allowances.

Selection criteria
• Importance of the conference for your own research
• Your scientific achievements
• Financial need

Application papers
For your application you need to submit a personal statement in English or German (no more than two pages, preferably in PDF format) on:
• Your research topic
• Location, date and organizers of the conference (including link to website)
• Topic and importance of the conference for your own research
• Topic of your presentation (abstract and title) and its potential asset for the conference

Please send your application via e-mail to the BIGS-OAS coordinator at [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.].

In case of approval of your application, you will be asked to attest the acceptance of your paper/poster at the conference before the grant is awarded. If you already received the acceptance letter for your paper, please add it to your application.

Selection process

The selection committee consists of the board of the BIGS-OAS. You will be informed within four weeks after the deadline about the approval or rejection of your application.

Postprocessing procedure
After returning from your conference you are required to submit a short report (one page) about your trip as well as a certificate of participation within one month.
The report should include the following:

The financial support cannot be granted if you have other funding for this specific purpose.

In case you cannot commit to your trip, BIGS-OAS will withdraw from its pledge of support. You therefore might want to cover travel cancellation insurance.

BIGS-OAS cannot consider incomplete applications.

In case of rejection you are free to apply again.
