Sport and Gender 2022

Grants and awards

Student Travel Grants 

We believe that our conference works best when attended by members from all levels of academia and that student involvement is fundamental to our development as a research community. To encourage attendance, we have 4 x travel grants up to 500 euros to award master’s degree students. The award provides a contribution towards the cost of travel to and from the conference. The exact amount of the awards will depend on the estimated expenses and demonstrated/perceived needs of the applicants.  In each case, payment of the grant will take place after a final report has been submitted to and accepted by the local organising committee. The deadline for application is September 25th, 2022. Decisions will be made shortly after the closing date. Successful applicants have now received written notification of the outcome of their application.
