International Geographical Union
The 2018 IGU Regional Conference, 6 - 10 August 2018, Québec, Canada
Québec IGU Travel Grant Program
The International Geographical Union (IGU) announces the availability of travel grants to help defray the costs of participation in the 2018 IGU Regional Conference, 6 - 10 August 2018 in Québec, Canada. Please note that, due to limited availability of funds, the IGU Travel Grants provide only a partial contribution to registration, transport and accommodation. A maximum of US$1000 will be awarded to successful candidates.
In selecting applicants to receive awards, preference will be given to young or emerging scholars, in particular to those from developing countries, but grants are available for senior scholars, for example session convenors or steering committee members from low income countries who are not able to find funding. Because the funds available for this awards program are extremely limited, all applicants will be required to find the balance of the costs of participation; applications for 100% support cannot be funded. Please note that full participation in the conference, including the closing ceremony, is required.
Although not a strict requirement, a letter of endorsement from the chair of an IGU Commission or Task Force, the chair of the applicant’s National Committee for the IGU or a session convenor at the regional Conference will be helpful in support of the application. Contact details of these individuals are available on the IGU website www.igu-online.org and the conference website http://igu2018.ulaval.ca/. Applications should be accompanied by a written statement (see below), the abstract of your paper, a proof of submission of the abstract, and any endorsement letters. All documents must be submitted directly to Vice-president Joos Droogleever Fortuijn by email to: email@example.com
Completed applications (including endorsement letters) are due at no later than 31st March 2018. Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their requests no later than 15th May 2018. Awards are paid to successful applicants in cash on arrival for the conference in Québec in US$ dollars.
