EUROSIS Student Travel Awards
EUROSIS makes student travel grants available to its student members. The awards are typically for a couple of hundred euros and it is our preference to fund conference travel where a student is giving a presentation of some description. These awards are available to all students (i.e., undergraduate and postgraduate masters students as well as those studying for a PhD). We expect the topic of the conference to be relevant to Simulation and Modelling although obviously related topics are also acceptable if the presented work is relevant to the society's areas of interest.
Student Travel Awards: Details
* Student travel awards are usually limited to € 300 maximum.
* EUROSIS generally sponsors only one student travel grant to either its ISC or ESM Conference.
* We send out a student travel award letter that can be used as collateral for an institutional "loan" (e.g., university buying you the ticket).
* The recipient must write a conference report suitable for publication in the EUROSIS Newsletter and/or Journal within 3 months of the event, and send it by email (in doc or txt format) to Philippe Geril. (Guidelines for writing conference reports).
* Once the conference report has been accepted by the Newsletter/Journal editor, the EUROSIS treasurer sends a cheque for the value of the student travel award.
* EUROSIS greatly prefers to grant student travel awards to people who are giving a paper or publicly talking, rather than just attending the ISC or ESM conference.
How to apply for a Student Travel Grant

Alternatively you may apply by sending an e-mail to EUROSIS-Travel Awards stating:
* The Conference (ISC or ESM) you wish to attend including where and when it is held.
* Whether giving a paper and if so, some more info such as a title and abstract. Make sure we have enough information to confirm that the paper is relevant to Simulation and Modelling.
* How much you'd need in total and how much you'd like from EUROSIS.
* Whether any other money has been promised and what alternative sources you've tried or are trying.
* Your EUROSIS membership number.
* Your email address.
This all helps in any arbitration process if we are over-subscribed.
