Travel Grants - PACE Travel Grant & Student Travel Grant

The PACE Travel Grant and Student Travel Grant programmes provide financial support for those who will be presenting at the conference and have limited financial possibilities to do so. For this event, there are both a PACE Travel Grant and a Student Travel Grant which are combined in one application process.
Based on your input you will automatically be allocated to either grant type.

Application for the travel grant

The travel grant application process is now open and will close on 31 October 2017 (23:59, GMT +1). After this date new applications are no longer possible.

Applicants will receive the final selection decision by mid-December 2017.
The grant selection process is separate from the Technical Programme selection process, however, a submission for the Technical Programme of Saint Petersburg 2018 (deadline 01 October) is mandatory before applying for the grant.

Every applicant will need to arrange and pay for their travels and accommodation, including visa, in advance. The grant, if allocated to the applicant, will not be paid before the event. Furthermore, please note that the grant is a contribution towards your expenses and not a full reimbursement. 

Policy for travel grant selection

After the travel grant application there are criteria in place based on which the selection rounds will take place. Only applicants that are accepted into the programme as presenters, will be considered for the grant, if they have not received a grant after May 2016. Below you will find an overview of the criteria in place.

  • Only persons who cannot obtain financial support given by their university/institute or other resources can apply. 
  • Only presenters of accepted oral and/or poster presentations will be eligible for receiving a grant. 
  • A person will only be considered for a financial support once every two years.
  • Priority will be given to EAGE members.
  • Please note: the requested support is a contribution and will not cover all of your expenses.
  • In case support will be granted; you will receive an email with a confirmation letter and an explanation of the procedure.
  • Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.
