IUVSTA- Elsevier Student Awards for IVC-21


This scheme is designed for young postgraduate research students to receive partial financial support to help you attend the IVC-21 at which you will be presenting a paper.


You can apply for this award if you fulfill at least the first two conditions:

- You are a postgraduate research student within seven years of obtaining your first degree at the start of conference (30th June 2019).

- You are planning to present your research at the conference.

- Preferably, you should reside and study in one of the developing countries that are eligible for the Research4Life program, as listed on (preferably Group A, otherwise Group B) and should have limited support to attend the meeting. However, if there are no applicants from those countries, the conference organizers can also support students from other countries. Also in those cases, the leading motive should remain supporting students who do not have sufficient means to attend the meeting.


To apply you must complete the application form, countersigned by a member of the higher education establishment and submit it until February 15th 2019 together with: 

-The abstract of your planned contribution to the conference. Please submit your abstract on this side:  


The selection will be made by a committee headed by the conference secretary based on the submitted information by the applicant and the fulfillment of the above mentioned conditions. For successful applicants the conference fee SEK 3,600 (approx. 360€) will be waived.

Successful applicants will receive a notification around March 20th and must confirm their attendance within 2 weeks. If you do not confirm your attendance within 2 weeks, the award will be re-allocated.
