ESSSAT offers a limited number of scholarships to enable participation in ECST XVII.

1. Reduced fee (300€) for students and non-established scholars

Students from European countries and/or studying at a European University with a recommendation which may be sent as an email attachment signed by their professors and who present a paper at the conference may register at a reduced rate of 300€. The reduction is granted only after the recommendation is received by the Secretary. Students should register as a regular conference participant, and send only the recommendation (not the registration) to the Secretary. Non-established scholars (who are not permanent university faculty members) may also apply in this category and should contact the Secretary for further information.

2. Scholarships for Conference Participation

There are also scholarships for students (up to doctoral level) available to cover registration fee and/or accommodation and/or travel expenses (occasionally). Applications will be considered from those submitting a paper, who are registered at an European institution and who demonstrate financial need. Students from outside Europe in similar circumstances may be considered but preference will be given to those studying in Europe.


The criteria used in selecting scholarship recipients are:

Age, academic status and place of residence together with

Active participation in the field of Science and Religion and/or

Active participation in the Conference such as the submission of a paper and

Financial Circumstances.


Applications should include:

  • The applicant’s name and e-mail address
  • An indication of what scholarship is applied for

·         A short CV stating academic status, age, residence and involvement in the field of Science and Religion

  • The provisional title of the submitted outline of a paper

·         A short statement of reasons connected to financial circumstances

 We strongly encourage applicants to look for additional support to cover participation, especially travel expenses.

 Applications should be sent to the Secretary of ESSSAT no later than October 31st 2017. Applicants will be informed on the evaluation of the application in December 2017.
