Travel Grants

Travelling to the IAHR Congress

The XXI Quinquennial IAHR World Congress will provide a select number of travel grants to allow scholars and officers to attend the Congress. You may be eligibile for travel grants to the XXI IAHR World Congress under the following conditions:

  1. The applicant must be a paid up member of a national or regional association which is a member or an affiliate to the IAHR.
  2. The applicant must show evidence of having sought funding from other available institutions or associations, such as the applicant’s home university or national funding organisations (written statement of institution required).
  3. The applicant must present an abbreviated CV.
  4. The applicant must present a paper at the conference, alternatively organize or chair a panel, function as respondent, or the like. The paper or panel must have been approved by the Academic Program Committee.
  5. The applicant must have registered as participant to the XXI IAHR World Congress.
  6. To help ensure that as many IAHR national or regional member associations are represented during the meeting of the IAHR International Committee, preference will be given to those speakers, presenters, panel organizers, chairs, respondents etc. who also function as one of two officers or delegates of their national or regional associations to the IAHR International Committee. Only delegates from member associations that are paid up will be considered eligible to receive funding.
  7. If no travel grant is awarded, de-registration and repayment of the registration fee is possible within 14 days after notification.
  8. The applicant, if a student, must present a letter of recommendation either from an official within the respective national association or from a senior scholar.

Application for Travel Grants is possible until February 15, 2015. You will be informed about the status of your application before March 1, 2015.

Grants are intended to cover part of travel costs. All grants cover second class (economy) travel only.

The recipient will be reimbursed for part of the travel costs, submitting full documentation of travel (original documents required). Full reimbursment may be awarded only in exceptional cases.

Grants will be awarded by the IAHR XXI World Congress Organizing Committee.
