Financial Support

Thanks to the EDGG's mother organization IAVS, we can support a number of participants with travel grants. Travel grants are awarded according to the IAVS criteria, based on income level of the person and gross domestic product of country of origin. They are 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. To qualify for a travel grant, IVAS membership for this year, active participation at the conference (oral presentation or poster) is required. After the conference, grantees are asked to provide a short report of the event as well as some photos that can be used in the EDGG bulletins. Application for the travel grants is closed.
