Financial support

If you want to participate at the EVS meeting and you need financial support from the IAVS, you have to apply by filling an application form in addition to the registration form. Please, also read the instructions for “IAVS Financial Support” available here, point 2. Participation in IAVS meetings (deadline for application for financial support is 20 March 2019).

Application procedure

1. Prepare a motivation letter (maximum 1 page) explaining why you want to attend the EVS Congress, the possible benefits to your future research, and if applicable, how previous experiences from other conferences have helped your research. Indicate the approximate amount of support (in Euros) you ask for, and which expenses you need to cover (travel, conference fee, accommodation, or any combination of these). State clearly that you have no or only partial financial support from your institution for attending the EVS Congress. Add a preliminary abstract of your talk or poster and a brief CV. 

2. Note that only IAVS members can receive the support. For any membership queries, please contact the Administrator ( Annual membership costs €20 for full members and €10 for student members. Free memberships are available for individuals in countries with currency problems (contact Administrator for further information).
The application form with your data will be handled by the EVS Congress Organizing and the Scientific Committee and sent to the head of IAVS Global Sponsorship Committee, which will make all decisions about financial support. The selection of grantees and the decision on the amount of the individual travel grants will be based both on the personal merits of the applicants (e.g. abstract quality, motivation, CV) and their needs (e.g. income situation, travel costs to Madrid, etc.).

3. All the applicants will be informed about the decision of the Global Sponsorship Committee by April 5th, 2019. Conference fees of the awardees will be covered directly by the IAVS, so the awardees will be exempt from paying the fees. The other costs (travel, accommodation) will be paid by the awardees and reimbursed to them by the IAVS Secretariat after the meeting based on the tickets, receipts or invoices.
