The IAGA and the IAGA2009 LOC are working together to offer a limited number of financial assistance grants to support participation at the 11th IAGA Scientific Assembly. An application for a grant can only be made by those who have submitted one or more abstracts to the scientific programme. Financial assistance funds are limited. Most awards will be for the registration fee only. It is unlikely that full support will be possible.

Applications for grant should be send exclusively to the Local Organising Committee in e-mail to the address:, with the subject: "IAGA 2009, application for grant". Already submitted abstract(s) by the applicant should be attached. The deadline is strict (March 31, 2009), in order to be able to bring decisions not later than April 30, 2009. In that case the grantees have possibility to apply to additional sources in their home countries.
