Grants available for this year’s summer intensive courses at the academy of converging media
Course applicants may also apply for one of the grants available from the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung sponsorship programme or the EU MEDIA programme.
The content + creation intensive courses at the academy of converging media (acm) in Berlin provide advanced vocational training in content development for the new media. A variety of grants are available for people wishing to participate in this year’s courses. The conditions of eligibility are outlined below.
The Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung sponsorship programme awards grants to citizens of the German states of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia, and the EU MEDIA programme to selected applicants from the countries that are currently candidates for EU membership: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Slovenia. In addition, there are grants available to citizens of all EU member states, including Germany.
Applications for a grant may be submitted directly with the course application. Applicants for a grant must also justify their application. The jury awards places on the course independently of whether an application for a grant has been submitted or not. A decision regarding such an application is then made following acceptance on to the course.
The application deadline for this year’s courses has now been extended until April 17, 2003

It provides a range of courses designed to meet the need for qualified conceptors, information architects and authors in the new and converging media.
