To enable PhD students’ participation, ESREA provides 10 bursaries in the form of free accommodation for 4 nights: 28 September to 2 October.

The accommodation is a double room for single use at the Hotel degli Arcimboldi****, near to the Bicocca Campus

Prospective candidates must be members of ESREA or students in a member institution

How to apply:

  • Write an e-mail to:
  • Subject of the e-mail: application for ESREA’s bursary
  • In the e-mail, please write information about your academic position, the reasons for applying (e.g. lack of funding from your institution) and a short letter of support (e.g. by your supervisor or by an ESREA member)

The organisers will examine applications in their order of arrival, check information with ESREA’s Secretary and take a rapid decision. In order to confirm the allocation of the bursary, you will have to register and pay the Conference fee right away.

This time-based procedure avoids to use criteria for selection that might be unfair. When all 10 bursaries are allocated, there is still a possibility to be put on the waiting-list in case of withdrawals.
