Thanks to the IAVS, we can support a number of participants with travel grants. Travel grants will be awarded according to the IAVS criteria, based on income level and country of origin. They will preferentially be given to early-career and other financially constrained scientists. The support usually covers only part of the participant's costs, according to the number of successful applications.
Eligibility and requirements:
The applicants should be IAVS members.
To qualify for a travel grant, active participation at the conference (oral presentation or poster) is required.
Only the presenter of the contribution will be supported so each applicant should apply with a separate talk or poster and she/he will be the presenter.
After the conference, grantees must provide a short report of the event, and some photos that can be used in Palaearctic Grasslands.
Travel grants can be applied for during online registration until 20 June, including a short motivation letter. Applicants for IAVS travel grants must be IAVS members for the year 2023. Information about the results of the travel grant applications will be given at the latest by 30 June.
IAVS support for Ukrainian scientists
On top of the travel grants, participation by Ukrainian IAVS members is completely free (no conference fee) - the respective fees are directly paid by IAVS to the local organising committee. Additionally, Ukrainian participants can apply for travel grants to cover the costs of their journey.
If you are an Ukrainian IAVS member participant, please indicate this in the respective part of the registration form.
Young investigator prize (YIP)
As in previous years, prizes will be awarded to young scientists for excellent presentation of their research (orally or in poster form). For these purposes, early career scientists (less than 35-year-old) will be asked during registration if they wish to participate in the contest. An applicant can apply for one category (best talk or poster) in one conference. During her/his presentation, the applicant needs to explain clearly her/his contribution to the work.
