Travel grants are intended to provide financial assistance to our members for their participation in our meetings.
As much as we would like to help as many people as possible, unfortunately our budget is limited and we are not able to meet every request. Therefore, we have to create certain criteria for selecting the grantees.
If there are more applicants than the budget available, we select candidates on the basis of their motivation and potential contribution to the meeting described in the application.
We encourage members to apply with environmentally friendly travel options if possible. However, air travel will equally be considered if there are no alternative options.
What do the grants cover?
The grants can cover up to 75% of the travel and accommodation expenses in connection with the meeting. The grants do not cover per diem, visa or local transport expenses (taxi, bus, etc).
The grant also includes accommodation for 3 nights. IETM will cover and arrange accommodation directly for the nights of 29 September to 2 October.
Who can apply?
The travel grant is offered to IETM members – regardless of the country where they are based – who fit the following criteria:
You or your organisation have been a member of IETM for at least one year;
The annual turnover of your organisation or of your freelance activities does not exceed 100,000 euros;
You have already settled your membership fee for the ongoing year.
How does it work?
The grantees are responsible for booking their own travel, which will be partly refunded after the meeting upon receipt of the grant report. The nights of accommodation covered by the grant will be booked and paid directly by us. If you decide to stay longer, you will have to make the arrangements yourself.
Please note that a travel grant is only offered to one person per organisation. If two or more people working for the same organisation wish to apply for a travel grant to attend the meeting, they must share one grant.
Application deadline: 1 July, 18:00 CET (Travel grants for IETM Belgrade are now closed)
Carefully fill out the amount and details costs field, as well as your environmental travel challenges.
Make sure to elaborate on the motivation section of the form – your motivation to attend the meeting will be the main criteria for selection.
