The IUVSTA-Elsevier Awards are designed to give partial financial support to four postgraduate research students within seven years of obtaining their first degree at the start of the congress to help them to attend EVC-15 conference at which they are presenting a paper.
The amount of the IUVSTA-Elsevier Award is up to EUR 500. In very exceptional cases, more than EUR 500 can be awarded on an individual basis.
Applicants should reside and study in one of the developing countries eligible for the Research4Life program as listed on http://www.research4life.org/eligibility/#groupa (preferably Group A, otherwise Group B) and should have limited support to attend the meeting. However, if there are no applications from those countries, conference organizers can also support students from other countries. Also in those cases, the leading motive should remain supporting students who do not have sufficient means to attend the meeting. The applicant must be registered as a postgraduate research student with a PhD thesis research program closely related to the scope of the congress. He/she should attend the congress and present a manuscript under an oral or poster form.
The applicant must submit the following items to the conference secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org) in order to be considered as a candidate:
