The GIG-ARTS conference and the Leibniz-Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut are proud to encourage the participation of emerging researchers through the HBI/GIG-ARTS Emerging Scholars Network project set up in 2022. Up to 10 exceptional submissions from emerging researchers will be selected to receive a grant of 500 EUR each, to help cover their conference participation costs. Masters or PhD Students who have not yet been awarded a PhD by the time of the conference are eligible.
In addition to presenting their work at GIG-ARTS 2022, the grantees will share their research via a short blog post on the HBI’s Media Research Blog, Podcast, or another science transfer format and will join a set of network building sessions leading up to the conference.
To be considered for the grant programme, Masters or PhD students must, in addition to the abstract submission process, notify the Co-Chairs of their application for the conference grant via an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org; no additional documents are required.
