The Botstiber Institute for Austrian-American Studies Funding Opportunities

Group of women from Australia, Austria, Bessarabia, Chile, Cuba, England, Esthonia, Holland, Hungary, Lithuania, Roumania, Switzerland with delegates to the Assembly of the League of Nations, 1930.

The Botstiber Institute for Austrian-American Studies (BIAAS) seeks grant proposals for projects aimed at promoting an understanding of the historic relationship between the United States and Austria (including Habsburg Austria) in the fields of history, politics, economics, law, cultural studies, and public history. Grants may include support for research, publications, and web/media projects. Salary replacement and/or tuition are not eligible. (Please note that events, while previously eligible for BIAAS grants, will now be funded through a separate initiative. Please check our website later this year for more information.) Grants will not exceed $25,000 unless a compelling case is made for a larger grant. Grant recipients in academia are encouraged to submit an article from grant research to be considered for publication in the Institute’s Journal of Austrian-American History.

Only grant applications submitted through BIAAS’s online application system by March 1, 2020 will be considered. Applicants will be notified of the results of their applications in June 2020. Grants will be distributed before September 1, 2020, with the grant award period beginning on September 1, 2020, and ending on August 31, 2021. A final report will be due within ninety days after the completion date of the award period.
