The grants are meant to enable scholars to embark into or complete their scientific projects. Every January the Center announces a contest of stipend programs for young scholars in three categories:
- Grants from the Center for Urban History and the Institute of Human Studies in Vienna;
- Residence Grants for PhD students and scholars from all over the world.
The Center supports projects offering a wide interpretation of urban history as a discipline which combines different approaches to humanitarian and social sciences.
Grant recipients maintain constant connection with the Center. During the grant program, recipients have to make a presentation of their project in the Center and take part in a seminar for participants of the grant program with involvement of a leading specialist on their topic
Additionally, they are encouraged to write an article based on their completed research; after positive feedback of two reviewers the article is published in English, Ukrainian and Polish in the "Publications – 'Ece-Urban'" Section of the Center's site. Residence grant recipients are given the possibility of free lodging at the Center and use of the Center’s resources over the course of a month.
