The authors and translators should have already proven themselves through publications. The research stipends are endowed with 8.000 € each and will be paid in two instalments in November and December 2021. The application must be submitted online. More information regarding the eligibility and criteria to be found here: INFO.

Please note: Lettrétage e. V. (Projekt schreiben & leben) does not grant any stipends. We are only offering some free advisement in order to help you with questions related to the application.
