Building bridges in regional science
2017 conference participation support
The RSAI will facilitate the participation of researchers from low-income and lower-middle-income economies (as defined by the World Bank: http://data.worldbank.org/about/country-and-lending-groups#Low_income) at the four largest Regional Science Conferences in 2017: World Congress, PRSCO, ERSA, and NARSC.
The RSAI will provide a subsidy of USD 500 (or the equivalent in other currencies) to selected researchers. This is likely to cover the conference registration fee and some local travel costs. Alternative means of financing will have to be sought for international travel and accommodation.
Only one author of a submitted paper presentation proposal can apply for a subsidy.
Interested researchers should upload a two-page CV plus a one-page motivation – including a budget with proposed sources of funding of the conference-related registration, travel and accommodation costs – within 30 days of receiving confirmation of the acceptance of the researcher’s abstract by the conference organizers.
Applications can be uploaded using the following link.
Applicants should have had a paper accepted for presentation at the conference.
All applications will be reviewed by the RSAI Executive, who will make a decision on the candidates to fund. Their decision will be final.
