The access awards are for participants who are limited by finances from fully engaging with scientific networks and communities.  Three awards of €650 will be given on a competitive basis and require three documents:

  1. An extended abstract (up to 2 pages) of their contribution to the conference
  2. A letter explaining why the applicant would like to attend the congress, including a clear statement to confirm that the applicant has limited finance and is not working within a larger project that provides access to funding.
  3. A letter of support from the applicant’s supervisor or department head.

Applications will be evaluated by the local organising committee. Individuals at any stage of their career may apply. Students are welcome to apply for both an access scholarship and the student paper competition.  Applications are due on 1 May 2019. Please note that all submissions should be based on abstracts accepted for oral presentations at the Congress in Trondheim. Submissions should be sent to the Local Organising Committee at the address:  post@ruralis.no
