The Georges-Arthur Goldschmidt Programme gives German-speaking and French-speaking up-and-coming translators the chance to get to know publishing companies. This bursary programme is organised jointly by the Frankfurter Buchmesse, Deutsch-Französisches Jugendwerk (DFJW), the Bureau International de l’Édition Française (BIEF) and the Swiss Foundation Pro Helvetia.
The end of application is on 31 August. Please send your application only by e-mail to Nina Garde firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year, the programme is held from the end of January to the end of March.
The funding for the Goldschmidt Programme is provided by the Deutsch-Französische Jugendwerk in accordance with its guidelines. From 2012 onwards, the Foundation Pro Helvetia funds a grant for a French-speaking participant from Switzerland. Participants receive a monthly grant of 900 Euros. Travel expenses to the various programme venues are paid for in part. Any costs incurred over and above this must be met by the participants themselves.
