EAPR Student Support

The EAPR is offering financial support to encourage a limited number of young scientists and PhD students to attend the 20th Triennial Conference of EAPR.

The EAPR aims to promote the global development of potato research and expects the selected applicants will use knowledge acquired at the conference to advance potato research in their geographic region.

The financial support will consist of:

  • For students coming from EU countries: a free congress registration
  • For students coming from non-EU countries: a free congress registration and an allowance of maximum 200 euros to assist with travel and accommodation expenses. This money will be given to recipients at the Congress, in cash. Travel invoices and accommodation reservations will need to be provided in order to get the allowance.

The eligibility criteria and application process are as follows:

  1. The applicant must submit an abstract for either oral or poster presentation before December 16, 2016 via the official abstract submission website (click here to submit) and tick the appropriate box for financial support application during the submission process.
  2. The applicant must submit a motivation letter (200 words) before December 16, 2016 via the official abstract submission website.
  3. The applicant must provide a student identification card from a recognized educational institution. The student card must be uploaded during the abstract submission process.
  4. The abstract must be accepted by the Scientific Committee for either oral or poster presentation.
  5. After the conference, the recipient commits to provide a short written report on his/her contribution to the conference in order to be published in the EAPR Newsletter issue following the meeting (October 2017).

Successful applicants will be notified by email by January 19, 2017 at the latest.

Unsuccessful applicants will be free to pursue or not within the registration process at a normal stage.

The organisers will provide a link by which recipients will have to register for the Congress at no charge.
Registrations fees will be waived but for additional optional events reservations, on-line payment will be requested. Recipients will have to book and pay for their travel and hotel accommodation.
