ICME Fellowship funding (up to 2.000 €) will be used to pay for conference registration, accommodation, airfare and a reasonable daily allowance in Kyoto Japan for participation in the conference 1-7 September, with a view to offer opportunities for enriching the on-going research of candidates through global interaction with ICME members from different parts of the world. Candidates are expected to remain active in ICME. We do not require each fellow to deliver a paper at conference but to write a report (500-750 words) with photographs for the ICME Newsletter.

Please send your CV (including your ICOM number), a statement (around 500 words) of how the Fellowship will benefit your career and 1 letter of recommendation from your employer to the conference committee at the email addresses below. We are sorry that applications received after the closing date of Monday 10 December 2018 cannot be considered). If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Very best of luck!
