Grants for the IAU XXIX General Assembly

A limited number of IAU Grants to attend the IAU XXIX General Assembly are available, primarily for young astronomers and astronomers from less privileged countries.

The grants will be paid out - either in cash in USD or else by bank transfer in EUR - after arrival and registration at the General Assembly.

To be eligible for a grant, applicants must submit at least one abstract to a Symposium or a Focus Meeting. (Submission of Abstracts to Division Meetings and General Science posters are not eligible.)

The grant application form can be downloaded only from the LOC Abstract Submission page:

Note that an Abstract submission ID number is necessary to submit a valid Grant submission form.
