Participation Grants Committee

Established in 2019 (initially as Travel Grants Committee), this Committee will create participation or travel grants or other support or prizes for early-career researchers, in particular (but not only) to participate in AILC-ICLA Congresses. The Committee will propose to the Executive Council sums and rules for such subsidies.

One member of this committee should also be a member of ECARE.

Members (2022-2025):
Oana Fotache-Dubălaru (Chair)
Other members will be announced soon

At its meeting in June 2021, the Executive Council approved the Committee’s proposal to offer participation grants to:

  • Graduate students
  • Early Career Researchers
  • senior scholars whose circumstances do not allow them to finance their travel or participation in ICLA events.

The AILC-ICLA gratefully welcomes donations to the Participation Grants fund. These can be made by contacting one of our Treasurers (details here) or by making a credit card payment and selecting the Donations option.

Participation grants offered to attend the XXIII International Congress in Tbilisi, Georgia, 24-29 July 2022:

Owing to uncertainty of the on-going sanitary crisis, the political situation, and the hybrid format of the Congress, the Participation Grant Committee has decided to allocate all its funds for the upcoming 2022 ICLA Congress (Tbilisi, Georgia, 24-29 July 2022), in the form of Congress registration Fee Waivers, giving special priority to students and to scholars who express need of financial aid. 

Those who wish to apply are kindly invited to send a message to, attaching also their accepted proposal for the Congress.

Registration begins on 25 March 2022; the Committee expects to receive these requests by 10 May 2022, so that decisions may take place at the most by 17 May 2022.
