Just in case any readers were intending to put in at the last minute for the EST Summer School Scholarship, the deadline is 1 May.
Students preparing a doctoral dissertation in the field of translation studies who are paid-up EST members are invited to apply for this scholarship of 1,000 euros.
The applications will be scrutinized by the committee, who 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.
To apply, please fill in the application form (including the attachments) and send it to Iwona Mazur – imazur at ifa.amu.edu.pl. Along with the form, applicants are asked to send a letter of recommendation from their dissertation advisor as a PDF or scanned attachment.
Receipt of complete applications will be acknowledged by e-mail.
The name of the scholarship recipient will be announced on the Society's website in the second week of June each year and notice will also be sent (by e-mail) to each of the candidates.
