Travel Support

Depending on the availability of funds, IAPSO can give support to scientists/students making presentations at an Assembly or a Workshop arranged or co-sponsored by IAPSO.

How can you apply? Information about applications for support is usually posted at the Assembly/Workshop website. Stay connected with IAPSO to learn about upcoming events.

General rules:

  • Support is given as a grant towards the registration fee and / or a contribution towards accommodation and meal costs.
  • Preference is given to individuals who have not recently received a grant.
  • The priority is to support scientists / students from developing countries.
  • Scientists / students from other countries must apply to national sources, but may occasionally receive grants from IAPSO for registration fees in order to increase the possibility of receiving national travel support. Preference is given to students and young scientists.
  • The applications for support are evaluated and ranked by the convenor of the symposium/session to which the abstract is presented.
  • The final selection of accepted applications is made by the IAPSO President, Secretary General and Treasurer, and handled by the Treasurer.
