Grants and Scholarships
The Finnish Youth Research Society and the NYRIS 11 Organizing Committee also want to enable the conference participation of less wealthy participants and participants from less affluent countries. Participation is supported with a separate grant and scholarship system, with a considerable amount of allocated funds.
A grant can be agreed to less wealthy participants
• with an acknowledged paper selected into one of the conference sessions and
• who do not receive other funding for participation costs.
The grants will foremost be paid by waiving the conference registration fee and reducing accommodation costs, in which case the organizers will designate a hotel room for the participant. Travel costs will only be reimbursed in exceptional cases.
The grant application should be a freely written, approximately one page long document, stating the need for aid and the symposium’s significance for the participant’s own research. A curriculum vitae must accompany the grant application. The grant applications must be supplied no later than 13 March 2011 (please note the changed date) to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
The final decisions on supported participants and their individual grant amounts will be made by the Organizing Committee and the scholars will be informed about the results 25 March 2011 at the latest.
