EST Summer School Scholarship
Call for applications

Ever since it was founded in September 1992, EST has focused on drawing attention to new research in Translation Studies, and encouraging young scholars to join the collective endeavour. Since 2003, the Executive Board of EST has sponsored one participant per year to attend a research summer school in translation studies.  This year, EST will again sponsor one EST member to attend a TS Summer School.

The sum of the scholarship will be 1,000 euros.

The deadline for submitting applications for the Summer School Scholarship is May 1st, 2011.

The applications will be scrutinized by a committee consisting of Barbara Ahrens, Alexandra Assis Rosa, Gyde Hansen, Iwona Mazur (chair), Franz Pöchhacker and Sonia Vandepitte. They will base their judgement on the application as a whole, taking into account all information asked for: the technical quality of the project, the applicant's competences and needs, and the relationship between the project and the summer school programme intended to follow.

Students preparing a doctoral dissertation in the field of translation studies who are paid-up EST members are invited to apply. To do so, please fill in the electronic application form (including the attachments) and send it to Iwona Mazur – imazur at Along with the form, applicants are asked to send a letter of recommendation from their dissertation advisor as a scanned attachment.

Receipt of complete applications will be acknowledged by e-mail.
