 ELSNET's Fifth European Summer School on Language and Speech Communication



ELSNET has successfully applied for a TMR (Training and Mobility of
Researchers) grant to provide bursaries to participants of the ELSNET
summer school (total 30.000 ECU for 1997). Each bursary will cover
the cost for travel, accommodation, subsistence and fee. Because this
opportunity will allow more people to participate, we have extended the
deadline for subscription to the summer school and for the application
of bursaries until

 *** MAY 12, 1997 ***


It is ELSNET's aim to put special emphasis on activities which will
ensure equal access to the Information Society for all European
citizens and language communities. As a result, applicants from the
following categories will be given priority:

 - young researchers from less-favoured regions
 - young researchers from the smaller and 'less-favoured' language communities
 - young researchers employed by SME's

A limited number of grants can be made available for participants
not belonging to one of the above categories. In that case, the
applicant should motivate in what way his/her participation will
contribute to equal access to the Information Society for all
European citizens and language communities.

In addition, applicants should be nationals of an EU Member State
or of an Associate State.

How to proceed

Please send your application, together with your registration form for
the summer school (which can be found at the Summer School Home Page)
to the Summer School Secretariat (cf below). It should contain a
concise motivation with respect to the conditions given above, plus an
estimate of costs to be covered by the bursary, and it should state
the applicants' nationality. Participants who already registered for
the Summer School can also apply for a grant. In that case, please
indicate on your application that registration was already done.

All applications will be considered by a small committee with
representatives from ELSNET, ESCA and EACL. Decisions are
expected by May 26, 1997.
