Why Do You Need This Book?
Want to go abroad to write, paint, sculpt, teach, travel, or conduct research? Need funding to pursue those activities? In this directory, Schlachter and Weber show you how to tap into the billions of dollars available to support research, lectureships, exchange programs, work assignments, conferences attendance, creative activities (like writing or painting), and professional development abroad. Note: If you want to find money for study instead of or in addition to research funding, be sure to check out Financial Aid for Study and Training Abroad.
The nearly 1,100 funding opportunities described in the 2008-2010 edition of this directory cover every major subject area, can be used in practically every country and region of the world (from the Aegean Islands to Zimbabwe), are sponsored by more than 500 different private and public agencies and organizations, and are open to all segments of the population--from high school students through postdoctorates and professionals.
Is the Book Hard to Use?
Everything about the directory has been designed to make your search for funding as easy as possible. You can identify programs not only by geographic location, but also by title, sponsoring organization, specific subject, and even deadline date (so fundseekers working within specific time constraints can locate programs by filing date). Plus, you'll find all the information you need to decide if a program is a match for you: purpose, eligibility requirements, financial data, duration, special features, limitations, number awarded, and application date. You also get fax numbers, toll-free numbers, e-mail addresses, and web site locations (when available), along with complete contact information, to make your requests for applications proceed smoothly. Finally, we've even included a currency converstion table, so you'll be able to approximate the value of awards offered in foreign currencies which which you are unfamiliar.
If you are interested in conducting research or participating in creative activities abroad and need money to do so, then this is the book for you!
