Travel Grants

To encourage global participation the IATUL Travel Grant programme provides financial assistance to library and/or information professionals from developing countries to attend the annual IATUL Conference. Five IATUL travel grants will be awarded to first-time attendees of this conference. Applications are encouraged from librarians at any institution that is an IATUL member or would qualify for IATUL membership (i.e., the institution has a focus or substantial programme in the sciences and/or engineering). When applying for a Travel Grant, please remember that English is the official language of the organization and its annual conference.

Travel grants are not intended to cover the full cost of attending the conference. The maximum amount of the grant for one person for this conference is 1.000,- Euros. This must be used to cover conference registration and the remainder for other travel related expenses. Please note that the Conference Organizer is not able to offer assistance with visa applications. Individuals who have been awarded an IATUL Travel grant in the past will not be eligible to apply again.
