Meeting Bursaries

Bursaries for EACR Conferences

We know how important conferences are to help researchers build their knowledge and share their findings. And we know that finding funding to attend conferences can be very difficult, especially for early-career researchers. That's why we offer EACR Meeting Bursaries.

EACR Meeting Bursaries provide funds to help early-career EACR members to participate in our conferences.
