We're awarding Travel Grants to support members of the European Association for Cancer Research who need financial assistance to attend the Congress and present their work as an oral or poster presentation. Each EACR Travel Grant includes a free registration and funds to support travel and accommodation costs.
We have two eligibility categories:
Student and Early Career EACR members with less than 4-years postdoctoral experience
EACR members who are based in a country with a low- or middle-income economy
There is no maximum amount you can apply for, but we expect applicants to choose the best value travel and accommodation possible, and we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to cover the full amount that applicants have applied for.
You are a current EACR member. Find out more. The EACR aims to be inclusive: we may be able to offer reduced membership fees for researchers from low/lower middle-income economies (as defined by the World Bank) or who have extenuating circumstances. To ask about this please contact our membership team.
Travel Grants are targeted at members who, without additional funding, would not be able to attend the congress. Please consider your financial need before applying and demonstrate it in your application.
Applicants must have submitted an abstract for the Congress on the Congress website.
You must also meet one of the criteria below:
Student and Early Career EACR members with less than four years postdoctoral experience. Exceptions may be made in the case of members who have had a professional break, such as illness or parental leave.
