ISCHE Travel Fund

ISCHE Travel Fund

Starting 2017 ISCHE is devoting some of the membership revenue to an ISCHE Travel Fund for the annual conference. These funds are for doctoral students and early career researchers (up to 5 years post-PhD), with particular preference given to scholars based in low-GDP countries.

Applicants must have their conference paper accepted and submit the following documents to information@ische.org with the subject line “early career travel support”:

  • Travel Fund request form [available soon]
  • Evidence of advanced student or early-career status (student card, dissertation certificate)
  • Brief CV (maximum 2 pages)
