Grant Application System
Instruction for grant applications
ISCA financially supports students and young scientists (age < 35) to participate in workshops and conferences organized or supported by ISCA. Exceptionally, researchers in special situations like unemployment or coming from low income-level countries may also apply. The support covers early registration and possibly accommodation costs, whereas travel expenses are covered only in exceptional cases. Applicants from all countries are eligible.
As a rule, grant applications are approved if they meet the requirements stated below, depending on the available budget. Even applications not complying with all requirements are considered and carefully evaluated and may still receive support.
The other requirements are the following:
- letter of acceptance of a paper to be presented
- mention of other funding being requested, awarded or rejected by other sources
- no previous grants from ISCA
- preference given to applicants from areas needing greater support
Applications should be sent BY EMAIL ONLY as early as possible and no later than the deadline specified on the website of the event (if no deadline is specified, the application should be sent no later than the early registration date of the event).
In the case of ISCA conferences or workshops, the grant is usually paid by ISCA directly to the organizers. For other events the grant is paid after the conference either to the organizers or to the applicant upon receipt of original invoices or bills justifying the claimed expenses.
By accepting a grant the recipient commits to writing a report describing his/her current research activity and the benefits expected for this activity from the attendance of the event. The report may be made public by ISCA through newsletters and/or the ISCA web.
Important: Report and receipts must be received by ISCA within 3 months of the conference or ISCA will assume that the grant has lapsed, and no reimbursement can be provided.
