ICG-EAC Student Grant

Here you find information about the ICG-EAC Student Grant and the application form.


To encourage and facilitate the attendance of young scientists and engineers to the annual meetings of the ICG-EAC, a Grant is sponsored by the ICG-EAC. A maximum of three Grants worth maximum US$ 2,000 each will be awarded to students. The amount and number of Grants awarded each year may change and is at the discretion of the ICG-EAC Group Leadership. For 2020 two Grants have been awarded (US$ 2,000 each).

UPDATE: Because the 2020 meeting had to be cancelled, the 2020 Grants will be transferred to 2021!
