EABS Travel Grants

The EABS Travel Grants are intended to support underrepresented and under-resourced scholars in Biblical Studies and related areas by enabling them to participate in the EABS Annual Conference, to enhance their professional/academic development and to establish an international network with fellow scholars.

As a rule, every year the EABS will make available 2000 EUR in total to fund Travel Grants. The number of grants awarded per year is not fixed. The maximum amount awarded per person is 600 EUR. The EABS is committed to funding as many eligible applicants as possible in order to support diversity and variety within its membership and conference participants.

The review panel reserves the right not to award a grant in a given year.


The 2020 EABS Annual Meeting Wuppertal, Germany, has been postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Consequently, EABS will not award any Travel Grants in 2020. All Travel Grant applications that were made for the 2020 conference will remain valid for the 2021 conference. Applicants will receive more information about this soon. 

The deadline to submit new Travel Grant applications for the 2021 conference in Wuppertal is 15th February 2021 23:59 CET. The Travel Grant application form will be available in December 2020.
