Grants for delegates from non-affluent countries
One of the aims of the ICME congresses is to have a balanced representation from all over the world among the presenters as well as among the general participants.
In order to achieve this goal ICMI has instigated a general policy of forming a solidarity fund established by setting aside 10% of the registration fees for grants. These grants assist delegates from non-affluent countries to attend the ICMEs.
An autonomous and anonymous Grants Committee, appointed by the ICMI Executive Committee, will distribute the funds amongst the successful applicants.
Priority will be given to applicants from non-affluent countries who contribute to the scientific program and to participants who are expected to be the only representative from their part of the world.
Grants will be given as partial support to registration fee, accommodation, meals and/or travel costs. All potential applicants are advised to apply for funding from other sources as well
