Even though there will be no conference fee, we are aware that it can be hard for students from farther off to afford conference participation. This page is designed to help you get some funding that may help you finance your travels and accommodation during the conference.
We are happy to say that we will be able to contribute a small amount towards travel and accommodation costs for speakers at the conference thanks to the generous support of our student’s union at Freiburg. This amount will probably not be enough to cover all of the costs but can, hopefully, encourage students in need to send in their proposals and participate.
If you would like to benefit from this option, please tick the respective box when you register, prepare a short statement of why you need additional financial support and bring copies of all your receipts to the conference (registration will open in August, the statement form will be sent out to accepted speakers).
To cover the rest of your costs, you may try to apply for funding at your university – most universities provide funding for conference participations.
German students may inquire at their local Studierendenvertretung (Fachschaft, Organe der Verfassten Studierendenschaft/Asta) and ask any supervising professor or the administrative head of their department about opportunities for funding (e.g. alumni networks and other organisations linked to the university). Students from abroad should inquire funding opportunities at the international office of their university.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions about funding!
