Grants

THE CALL FOR GRANTS IS NOW CLOSED!

We believe that a successful conference is a diverse one, whether in terms of thematic specialisations, positions and experiences, or ideological and cultural backgrounds. Recognising the discrepancy in levels of welfare, income, and costs of travel, our Team has been and will keep on fundraising to support participants of the ICCG 2015, and is grateful for the generous contributions of donating organisations and bodies.

We hope that this list keeps on growing, and request from those interested in applying for support to note; first, the variations in procedures and criteria respective to the announced schemes, and; second, we will publish grant possibilities as they are confirmed, hence not at one instance, rather over time and as these occur.

Results will be communicated on 1 February 2015.

Good luck!
