EABA fund for Dissemination of Behaviour Analysis in Europe

 

The European Association for Behaviour Analysis (EABA) scholarship fund for dissemination of behaviour analysis in Europe is managed and funded by EABA with an amount of 5000 euros per year max. The maximum amount per applicant is 2500 euros.

 

The fund supports objectives that help spread knowledge of behaviour analysis in countries where attendance fees to lectures, workshops or conferences may be expected to be low in the beginning and not sufficient to pay the costs involved in offering high quality events meant to disseminate behaviour analysis in a geographical area.

 

The grant aims at supporting initial steps in the dissemination of behaviour analysis in areas where little or no such effort has been made before. The grant is meant for those who have limited resources and little or no access to professionals to aid in the development of behaviour analysis. Meeting the previous requirements, the fund may support:

  1. events resulting in the dissemination of knowledge of behaviour analysis, especially where there has been little or none such initiative before.
  2. development or research using behaviour analytical methods.
  3. participation at international conferences where applicants are to present a behaviour analysis project as a poster or presentation.

 

Supported projects may receive a scholarship over a period or as a lump sum.

 

 

Processing of applications

Applications for the scholarship fund are handled by the EABA board twice per year. The applicant must be an EABA member.

 

Applications should be sent to EABA secretary (secretary@europeanaba.org) no later than March 30 and October 30 each year.

 

Applications should provide information about the status of behaviour analysis in the area, for example university courses taught, previous efforts to establish or disseminate behaviour analysis in the area, and plans for further efforts to disseminate behaviour analysis in the area.

 

Applicants should also include information in detail about the event(-s) planned, possible number of attendees (at each event), participation fees if applicable (at each event), official language of the event(-s), venue of event(-s), and criteria for inclusion of speakers/presenters/trainers. In addition, applicants should submit a budget. Furthermore, the applicants should submit a report to the EABA board one month after the event without further notice from EABA. Applicants should also provide information on whether they have any association with local universities and whether they have opportunities to include university students in the events.

 

The board of EABA will decide on the applications at its regular meetings with respect to the general principles of EABA and the mission to disseminate behaviour analysis in Europe.

 

After a successful application a further application by the same organization / person is possible only after a period of one year.
