The European Association for Behaviour Analysis (EABA) scholarship fund for dissemination of behavior 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 behavior 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 behavior analysis in a geographical area.
The events that will be supported shall not be part of a formal BCBA initiative already established or underway. In addition to supporting initial steps in the dissemination of behavior analysis in areas where little or no such effort has been made before, the fund may support:
- events resulting in the dissemination of knowledge of behavior analysis, especially where there has been little or none such initiative before.
- development or research using behavior analytical methods
- participation at international conferences where applicants are to present a behavior analysis project
Supported projects may receive a scholarship over a period or as a lump sum.
