DiGRA Solidarity Fund

We are happy to announce the DiGRA Solidarity Fund. The purpose of the fund is to provide means for scholars from less privileged countries to attend DiGRA International events and present their work. We aim that every time the DiGRA International conference is organized we can provide at least 3-4 scholars the ability to travel to present their work at the conference. On this first occasion the total amount will be 6000€, which will be divided between the recipients according to their estimates for travel costs.

The application period for the DiGRA International conference in Krakow is from May 1st to May 15th. You can apply by sending the filled-out form attached to this email and a short CV (max 2 pages) to me (mimasi@utu.fi). Decisions on who the funds will be awarded to are made by the Solidarity Fund Committee by May 31. All applicants will be informed personally on the decision.

The fund will be paid for each recipient as a stipend according to their estimates of how much they need to travel to the conference and stay there for the full duration of the conference (flights, hotel, etc.). The recipients will need to present receipts of the expenses to DiGRA Treasurer Jussi Holopainen, and they are expected to participate in the whole conference (so not just a day or two).

If you have any questions, please email me, DiGRA ICO Miia Siutila (mimasi@utu.fi). I am also creating a FAQ doc here as the questions come in, so please check that out too. 

Sincerely,

Solidarity Fund Committee
