Support from IACS

Travel grants to IACS Assemblies

Funding is usually available to partially support attendance at IACS General and Scientific Assemblies, in particular for early career scientists, and postdocs and students from developing countries. Awardees must be IACS members and comply with the IACS Implementation of IUGG resolution on reducing our carbon footprint.

Support will be available for attending the 28th General Assembly of the IUGG in Berlin 11-20 July 2023.

Support requests for Workshops, etc.

IACS co-sponsors cryosphere-related workshops, educational or other events, typically up to a maximum of 2000 Euros per event. Organizers of such events can request support from IACS by sending a support request form (download here) to the Secretary General. Awardees must be IACS members. IACS must be acknowledged in relevant event-related material, such as homepages and flyers. A report of how the funding was spent is required within two weeks after the events and activities.

There are three deadlines per year on 1 February, 1 June and 1 October. Funding requests must be submitted for a deadline at least two months prior to the event that is to be supported (for example, the funding request for an event in July must be received by 1 February). Proposers will be informed of decisions approximately two weeks after the deadline.
