You are requested to fill in the scholarship application form through your conference profile and link it to the submission number(s) you received after submitting your abstract, workshop or Global Village and Youth activity. A recommendation letter from a manager, colleague or peer, will also be requested to complete your scholarship application.
Scholarship allocations for abstract presenters, workshop facilitators or Global Village and Youth activity organizers are judged based on the quality of the submission.
The scholarship is connected to the submission, not to the individual. Consequently, if the presenting author, facilitator or organizer changes, the scholarship is cancelled, unless a request is made to transfer the grant to the new presenting author, facilitator or organizer. In case the new presenting author, facilitator or organizer has already incurred costs for travel, accommodation or registration, these will not be reimbursed by the scholarship programme.
The deadline to request a scholarship transfer is 1 June 2018.
Please note that the acceptance of your abstract, workshop or Global Village and Youth activity does not guarantee you a scholarship. Therefore, you are strongly recommended to seek alternative funding.
The conference secretariat offers a free Abstract Mentor Programme for young or less experienced researchers to benefit from expert mentoring and maximize their chances to get their abstract accepted at the conference. The programme includes a free online course on scientific abstract writing up to two rounds of review. Learn more and submit your draft abstract today.
