IAU Travel Grants

The IAU wishes to support qualified scientists to whom only limited means of support are available, e.g., colleagues from economically less privileged countries and young scientists (Section 3.9 of the Rules and Guidelines for IAU Scientific Meetings). An IAU grant should be the seed money in ensuring the participation of a selected beneficiary, including participants with young children, rather than adding comfort for colleagues whose attendance is already assured.

IAU GA meetings travel grants are intended to cover in part expenses associated with the participant’s attendance during the respective entire meeting, including support for child care if needed. It is expected that the grantees will also attend other GA meetings. Requests for financial support are submitted by the individual IAU member using the specific GA IAU Grant Application Form prepared by the GA SOC. Full completion of the Application Form is mandatory, including submission of an Abstract, if relevant.

The deadline for the application is around 1st of March of the year of the GA. Please note that all deadlines listed close at 11:59 PM in the IAU office in Paris, France (GMT+1) on the given deadline date.
