ESAI/EPA Grassroots Workshop Support Scheme

About the grant

The ESAI-EPA Grassroots Workshop Support scheme is open to postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers who are members of the ESAI and who are conducting research relevant to the EPA remit.

The purpose of the ESAI Grassroots Workshop Support scheme is to assist early-stage researchers with the delivery of workshops that fall within the remit of the ESAI and EPA.

Workshops are essential for the dissemination of research, knowledge exchange, development and exposure of early career researchers and for establishing new collaborations.

They are a key networking tool, and an opportunity for early-stage researchers to increase their profile within a field of study.

The theme of the workshop must fit within the remits of the EPA and ESAI, who must be acknowledged in conference publicity materials.


Applications can be submitted at any time and are assessed six times per year, by a panel drawn from the ESAI Council.

Visit the ESAI website to submit an application

Applications should include a one-page summary CV of the main applicant.

Applications will be assessed on the quality of the proposal, how the event fits with the remits of the ESAI and EPA, and on the expected outputs and benefits of the proposed workshop.

The diversity of the audience will also be taken into consideration, and workshops organised jointly between more than one institution will be favoured.

Payments will be made by ESAI following submission of invoices.

Successful applicants will be expected to submit an article to the ESAI e-zine describing the event.

Please send a completed application and one-page CV by e-mail to Sinead Macken at least 3 months before the date of proposed workshop.
