Our mission is to promote an understanding of the historic relationship between the United States and Austria. Therefore, funding proposals should be transatlantic in scope. We rarely fund projects that do not involve both countries or, at least, link the Habsburg Empire and the Americas.BIAAS funding can be used for research anywhere necessary for the project, even if it is not physically in the United States or Austria. Several former grantees have utilized archives in other Habsburg successor states and the archives of international organizations in other European countries and elsewhere.
Applications may include support for research, publications, and web/media projects. Salary replacement and/or tuition are not eligible. The maximum funding an applicant may seek is $25,000; there is no minimum request. The maximum award period for a Botstiber grant is one year, beginning on September 1 and concluding August 31. Please write your budget and application such that the proposed work does not start before September 1 and that you are not requesting funding beyond August 31 of the following year.
Only grant applications submitted through the online application system will be considered. First-time users must create an account prior to beginning the application process.
