The Center for Urban History is accepting applications for its annual Residence Grant Program to study for a month in Lviv.
We accept applications for research projects that reflect a broad interpretation of urban history as a discipline, where different humanities and social science approaches meet. For the study of East Central Europe in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the projects can use, for example, any of the following research approaches: "traditional" archival research, oral history, ethnographic or sociological methodologies.
The grant is offered to postgraduate students and researchers (regardless of citizenship, place of work, or residence) who are interested in conducting research in Lviv. Please note that the scholarship is not offered to master's students.
The grant includes free accommodation at the Center for a period of one month and access to the Center. The grant does not cover the costs of travel, meals, and other expenses for recipients during their stay in Lviv.
The application must include:
Project description (1,000-2,000 words)
One letter of recommendation (only in the case of scholars who have no doctoral degree or its equivalent).
Applications can be submitted in the following languages: Ukrainian, English, Polish, Russian, and German.
Please send applications to the Center’s Program Coordinator Dr. Iryna Matsevko (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 10, 2014. In the "Subject" please write "Residence Grant Application 2014."
The decision to award grants will be announced no later than April 1, 2014.
