Thanks to our Sponsors, we are happy to offer Travel Grants for Young Scientists.
Who can apply?
Eligible are current BSc, MSc and PhD Students up to 30 years old, as well as PostDocs up to 35 years old (evidence of status and age is required) who register for the Symposium with an abstract for an oral or a poster presentation.
What is the deadline for applications?
Same as the extended Early Registration deadline, i.e. the 22nd of April 2022.
How to apply?
Applications, which include your abstract, a short letter of motivation, a budget (listing your travel and accommodation expenses), and a letter of support from your supervisor or PI are to be uploaded via the REGISTRATION PLATFORM.
What if I’m not awarded a Travel Grant and I cannot come to Kraków – will I get my registration fee back?
Yes. Decisions on Travel Grants will be made by 22.05.2022, i.e. two weeks before the Cancellation deadline at the latest. Thus, if your attendance depends on obtaining a Travel Grant and you were not awarded one or the amount awarded was too low, you will have two weeks to cancel your registration, if you wish, and recover your registration fee (minus bank transfer/credit card charges).
How will the reimbursement be processed?
Funds, depending on the awarded amount, will be provided as a reimbursement of registration fees and/or documented travel and/or accommodation expenses directly related to the Symposium. Please note that only economy fares may be reimbursed.
How will the ranking list be constructed?
Applications will be evaluated by a panel appointed by the Symposium Chair. The ranking list will be based on the quality of the submitted abstract(s), motivation letter, budget description, and support letter. However, all else being equal, first-time participants and young scientists professionally based in countries not mentioned in the following list will be given preference: Andorra, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Bahrain, Barbados, Belgium, Canada, China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Greenland, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macao, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States of America.
