The Student Advisory Council of SETAC is working hard to provide funds that can be offered to the participants as travel support. The number of available travel grants will depend on the final budget of the meeting.
Travel grant applications will be incorporated within the meeting registration procedure. The Council will address each of these applications on individual basis, and we will do our best to award the travel grants to participants who need them the most.
We still urge all of the participants to choose the most cost-effective itinerary by using low-cost companies or looking for flight promotions. Please consider that for some participants the most cost-effective itinerary means taking ground transport. We are aware that for some participants this may mean spending more time traveling, flying out from smaller airports (and/or at an inconvenient time), or taking trains/buses. We urge all participants to do this so that additional money can be invested in order to have the most enriching experience for as many students as possible.
We might not be able to provide travel grants for all participants, nor promise to cover full travel cost of students who do receive the grant, but we will do our best to make this meeting a reality for all participants who had their abstracts accepted.
We advise you to wait for the confirmation and detailed instructions regarding the grant approval before booking the flight if your participation is dependent on the travel support.
