IAU Travel Grant Application

[UPDATES: CAP2020 will be postponed to next year and a new date announced on 1 June 2020. Until 1 June 2020, Abstracts and Grant applications will be temporarily suspended. The abstracts and grant applications that have been submitted to date will automatically be considered for CAP 2021. Once the new Conference Dates are announced in June, all submitters will be contacted in case you want to withdraw an application or update any of the information provided.]

There are a few travel grants provided by the IAU to support those who have limited means of support, e.g., colleagues from economically less privileged countries and young scientists/professional communicators.

All grant applicants should submit their oral/poster/workshop contribution before completing this travel grant application. (A grant application without prior abstract submission will NOT be considered)
