This year, a total of twenty-three travel grants worth more than US$30,000 were awarded to early-stage scholars who are also members of IAMCR, hailing from low and middle-income countries. These grants provided them with the opportunity to participate in and present their work at the Lyon conference. Among the recipients, there were 13 women and 10 men, representing 16 different countries.
IAMCR expresses its sincere thanks for the enthusiastic interest demonstrated by all applicants. Congratulations to the award winners! We trust that your conference experience was enriching, allowing you to forge valuable connections.
