IASGP - International Association for the Study of German Politics


IASGP Funding Opportunities

The IASGP executive committee decided at its February 2008 meeting to offer members of the Association the opportunity to apply for financial support in organising events that directly help to profile the Association's activities. The committee has earmarked a maximum of £2,000 annually for this purpose. The scheme will run for 5 years (i.e. until the end of 2013) when it will be reviewed with a view to extension and/or expansion.

Members wishing to take advantage of this scheme should take notice of the following points:

  • Members should be hosting, or heavily involved in organising, an event that clearly raises the profile of the IASGP.
  • Applications should contain details of the event, an explanation of why it is in the IASGP's interest to support it and how the IASGP's contribution will be spent.
  • Preference will be given to events that are linked to publications, especially and explicitly those that involve German Politics
  • A two page event report will be provided within three months of the event's conclusion. This report will be published on the IASGP's website and in the IASGP's newsletter.
  • The IASGP, its logo and its website should be advertised in any marketing related to the event, the event's programme and literature produced thereafter.
  • This scheme is not intended to support the individual participation of members at conferences.
  • Applications will be reviewed and assessed by members of the executive committee. The committee's decision will be final
  • Members should send their applications (via email) to the Secretary (see the contacts page for further details).
  • There is no deadline (i.e. members can apply at any point in the year). Applications do, however, need to be received at least two months prior to the proposed event taking place
