Solidarity grant for participants and application for a grant

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. Inorder to achieve this goal ICMI has instigated a general policy of forming a solidarityfund established by setting aside 10% of the registration fees for grants. These grantsassist delegates from non-affluent countries to attend the ICMEs.

An autonomous and anonymous Grant Committee, appointed by the IPC of ICME-13, will distribute the funds amongst the successful applicants. Priority will be given to applicants from less-affluent countries who contribute to the scientific programme with a paper or a poster. The criteria are: the quality of the submitted paper or poster, the role at the congress, the scientific potential of the proposal, the geographic representation and the special mathematics educational situation in the applicant’s country.

Grants will be given mainly as partial support to registration fee, accommodation and travel costs. Please be aware that no funding in advance will be possible, apart from the waving of the conference fee, which will be done with a token during the registration process. Refunding will take place during the congress in Hamburg. All potential applicants are therefore advised to apply for funding from other sources as well.
