Travel Grants


The IIOA uses limited funds as part of its strategy to encourage young scholars meeting certain criteria to enable them to attend IIOA Conferences.

Eligibility and verification

Applicants for a travel grant should:

  • Hold a citizenship and reside in Non-High Income Countries (using the World Bank definition). To view the list of eligible countries go here.
  • Applicants must be valid IIOA members, in particular, paid their membership fees.
  • Under 40 years of age.
  • Must also present an unpublished paper at the IIOA Conference.

Those who received travel grants in any of the three previous IIOA Conferences are excluded from the application process.

The Travel Grant Committee of the IIOA will verify applicant qualifications and bestow the grants to those qualified applicants with the most promising papers.


To apply for a travel grant, presenters must...
(1) ...upload the PDF of their full paper in COPASS no later than 11 February 2019, 23:59 hours (Central European Time) and
(2) ...tick the selection box “Apply for the Travel Grant“ in COPASS, which is displayed at the very bottom of their Article View page.

In addition to the COPASS submission, authors who wish to apply for a travel grant should submit their full paper to the SPC Chair by the specified deadline (see Important Dates).
