Solidarity Fund and Application for a Grant


One of the aims of the ICMEs is to have a balanced representation from all over the world among the presenters as well as among the general participants. In order to achieve this goal, ICMI has instigated a general policy of established a solidarity fund by setting aside 10% of the registration fees for it. The fund assists delegates from developing countries to attend the ICMEs.

An autonomous and anonymous Solidarity Fund Committee, appointed by the IPC of ICME-14, will distribute the grants from the Solidarity Fund amongst the successful applicants. Priority will be given to applicants from developing countries who contribute to the scientific programmes.

Grants will be given mainly as partial support to registration fee, accommodation, and travel costs. All potential applicants are advised to apply for funding from other sources as well.
