Botstiber Institute for Austrian-American Studies Grant

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 in the fields of history, politics, economics and law. 

Grant proposals will also be accepted in the fields of literature, poetry, music and translations. Grants may include support for related lectures, seminars, workshops, conferences, and documentaries. Grants for salary replacement will not be considered.

Grants will not exceed $25,000 unless a compelling case is made for a larger grant.
Grant applications must be submitted by March 31, 2011. Applicants will be notified of the result of their application in June.

A proposal summary (not to exceed one page) should provide the following:
  • Proposal title
  • Name of applicant
  • Your position and institution (if applicable)
  • Mailing address
  • Email address
  • Project synopsis (not to exceed 100 words)
  • Amount of money requested (in dollars)
  • What is the final product that you are working towards during the grant period? (not to exceed 15 words)

Narrative Description (not to exceed three single-spaced pages):

Applicants should submit a narrative, not to exceed three single-spaced pages, which provides a justification for their projects, conveying the ideas, objectives, methods and work plan. A simple statement of need or intent is insufficient.

If the grant request is for a distinct part of a larger project, an overview of the larger project should be included. The applicant should describe the intended audience and the intended results of the project. The applicant should explain how the results will be disseminated and why such means are appropriate to the subject.
