IAMCR 2021 "no travel grants"

Can’t go to IAMCR? Get a no travel grant and organise a no travel event!

IAMCR has a long tradition of offering travel grants to support members who would otherwise be unable to attend our annual conferences. With the global pandemic restricting travel and obliging IAMCR to hold its conference online, we can’t offer members a chance to travel to IAMCR 2021, but maybe we can help IAMCR go to you...

We are offering up to 24 no travel grants to IAMCR members in low and middle income countries who will organise IAMCR no travel events during IAMCR 2021. (list of low and middle income countries)

What is a no travel event?

A no travel event is an event you organise during the week of IAMCR's online conference (11-15 July) at which you and some colleagues get together (socially distanced and in compliance with the recommendations of local health authorities) to watch one or more IAMCR 2021 video sessions and, if you want, to add extra content – hold a discussion, organise a panel, invite a guest speaker (local or via teleconference)… Your no travel event can run for a few hours or a few days and, because IAMCR video sessions will be recorded, you can schedule your event at times and dates convenient for you.

What is a no travel grant?

A no travel grant is a grant of US$250 that can be used to pay for costs associated with your no travel event, including rental of a room and/or equipment, coffee and snacks, video documentation of the event, travel of a guest speaker, disposable medical masks, etc...). Salaries or honorariums for organisers or speakers cannot be paid for with the grants.

You must be an IAMCR member to apply.
