Grants for organizing academic events
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
AIETI offers two grants, worth €500 each, to fund the organization of academic events related to Translation and Interpreting Studies.
An event is eligible for a grant if:

Its application is submitted in the corresponding period, i.e. between 1 January and 30 June for events taking place in the second half of the same year, and between 1 July and 31 December for events taking place in the first half of the subsequent year.
Priority will be given to applications for funding for events that:
- Are international.
- Plan to disseminate contributions in the form of proceedings or another kind of publication.
- Plan to issue an award or another form of recognition (e.g. for the best poster or paper) whose title includes AIETI’s name.
- Have no other source of funding (secondary criterion).
HOW TO APPLY
Applicants must send AIETI’s president and secretary an email with the information mentioned in the Requisites and Priority sections above, i.e.:
- Conference/symposium details: national or international, subject matter, venue and date
- Confirmation that the applicant is a member of both the event’s organizing committee and AIETI.
- Written evidence of institutional support.
- Details of whether contributions are to be disseminated in the form of proceedings or another kind of publication.
