Two sources of modest financial aid are available specifically for participation in the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Gypsy Lore Society and Conference on Gypsy Studies.

European Academic Network on Romani Studies

The European Academic Network on Romani Studies has allocated some funds to support early career researchers participating in international conferences in Romani studies.

Students whose papers are accepted for the 2013 Annual Meeting and Conference on Gypsy Studies can apply for support; applications will be selected by a committee appointed by the SC of the Network.

An application is available on the network's web site, http://romanistudies.eu/news/grants-for-early-career-researchers/. Inquiries should be sent to: rsnet.secretary@gmail.com; romastudies@coe.int.

Gypsy Lore Society

Through the generosity of its members, the Gypsy Lore Society will award two stipends of $250 each to eligible Conference participants.

Applicants should currently be enrolled in a PhD program or those up to three years past completion of their PhD  requirements.

Their conference papers should be accepted.

They should not have received aid for meeting attendance from another source.

Applicants should send a letter of application to the Gypsy Lore Society treasurer, sheila.salo@gmail.com, by July 10, 2013. The letter should indicate your school and program and what other sources of aid are available to you.

The review committee will announce the awards by July 30, 2013.
