Scholarships

Applications are now closed

The Union proudly provides a limited number of scholarships to select speakers and presenters of scientific sessions and to participants from affected communities or community volunteers. Individuals from low and lower-middle income countries will be given priority.

Two types of scholarships are available:

  • Accepted symposia speakers and abstract authors may apply for support to cover some of their travel and participation expenses. This may cover conference registration, hotel accommodation and/or travel costs. Please note that you can only apply for a scholarship if you have been accepted as a symposia speaker or abstract presenter. Only applications linked to an accepted symposium or abstract presentation will be considered.
  • Affected communities or community volunteers may apply for free conference registration

Applications to the scholarship programme are now closed.

If you have any questions, email: scholarships@theunion.org
