A limited amount of the overall budget of the conference is reserved to assist early career scientists in attending the EGU General Assembly.
Early Career Scientist's Travel Award (ECSTA): this award includes a free registration together with a refund of the Abstract Processing Charge (APC) related to the abstract for which support was requested. Depending on the decision of the Support Committee, additional financial support for the travel expenditures with a maximum of €300 could be granted as well.
The nominee needs to satisfy the following criterion by 1 January of the year when the travel award is presented: Be an undergraduate or postgraduate (Masters/PhD) student or a scientist who has received his or her highest degree (BSc, MSc, or PhD) within the past seven years*.
*Provided parental leave fell into that period, up to one year of parental leave time may be added per child, where appropriate.
Participants from low income countries in Europe are particularly encouraged to apply for travel support as dedicated funds are earmarked for this group.
Early career scientists who wish to apply for financial support must be the contact author of their contribution, and they must submit an abstract by late November. Late applications, or applications where the scientist is not the main author, will not be considered.
For the submission of an abstract/application for financial support, please enter the Session Programme, select the part of the programme you would like to submit an abstract to, and study the respective session list. Each session shows its link Abstract Submission. To apply for financial support, make sure you click the appropriate box when submitting your abstract. The EGU support selection committee will decide about awarding support to individual contributions by late December. All applicants will be informed after the decision.
