Travel grants

As a member of the SPS, you can apply for travel grants to attend SPS, FEPS, and IUPS. Applications from PhD students, post docs and MA students are prioritised in being awarded reimbursement for expenses to cover the following:

  • conference registration fee
  • travel expenses
  • accommodation
  • official conference dinner

The application

Travel grants will be available for meetings initiated by SPS, FEPS, and IUPS, for SPS members who have an active role at the specific meeting (presenter of poster or oral presentation and other related activities), but are not invited to a symposium.

Applications from young researchers will have priority. The amounts will be different for different meetings, and we cannot guarantee that everybody will receive a travel grant.

  1. Your travel grant application should be received by SPS prior to the meeting. The rules and application deadline will be announced at under the specific meeting.
  2. After the deadline, the executive committee will receive a list of the received applications for approval. The executive committee will function as grant committee.
  3. You will shortly after this get a letter from us with the outcome.
  4. Guidelines for travel reimbursements will be announced in connection to the specific event.
  5. It is important that you provide the correct information regarding your bank account. If your bank is not located in Sweden, we will need both your SWIFT and IBAN number to be able to make the transfer.
