A major aim of Geocongress 2018 is to offer postgraduate students the opportunity to present their research at a national conference, attend scientific sessions across a range of disciplines, and network with prominent researchers in their field. Every effort has been made to keep registration costs for the conference as low as possible, but we understand that there are additional costs that may prohibit attendance.
We are happy to announce that the Student Support Subcommittee of Geocongress 2018 will provide financial assistance to deserving postgraduate students to attend the conference, based on the outcome of a competitive application process.
To be eligible for financial > support, you need to be a full-time Honours, MSc or PhD student registered for the 2018 academic year at a tertiary institution in South Africa or one of its neighbouring countries. You also need to be the presenting author of an oral or poster presentation at the Geocongress. You are not eligible if you have funding dedicated to attending the Geocongress from another source.
To be considered, candidates need to submit their applications to Geocongress2018students@gmail.com by no later than 13 April 2018.
