EWM grant for members of early career or from developing country:
EWM will start awarding a few grants each year for female mathematicians that are EWM members and are at an early stage of their career or work in a developing country, who need funding (travel and/or accommodation, up to 400 EUR) for participating and giving a talk at a significant conference in their field.
The applicant should submit to contact@europeanwomeninmaths.
-a short letter from the PhD advisor (in case of PhD students) or of the applicant (in case of PhD holders) describing the relevance of participating at that event and motivating the need of funding.
-a presentation abstract, names and institutional affiliations of co-authors and an estimate of the expenses for which the application is made.
Grant holders will be expected to represent the EWM when participating in the meeting for which the funding was applied for.
