IAMCR offers travel grants of up to US$ 1,500 each to members who are early-stage scholars and would otherwise be unable to attend our conferences.

Applicants must have been IAMCR members for at least one full year (i.e. it must be at least their second year as a member of the association), reside in a low or middle income country (see IAMCR's country classification list), and have an abstract accepted for full presentation at the conference. Details, including deadlines and procedures for applying, are announced early each year on the website, newsletter, mailing lists and various social media.

Below are some messages and articles we have received from past travel grant recipients. Please consider making a donation to the travel grant fund. It's a great way to encourage emerging scholars and new perspectives within IAMCR.
