This travel award is offered to outstanding PhD students in the early part of their thesis/doctorate to allow them to attend the ICCT conference. The award is expected to be available every two years. Students at the end of their graduate studies (within the last year) are encouraged to apply for the Kehiaian travel awards, which are more generous. It is not permitted to apply for both the Kehiaian and Junior travel awards.
The award will be a financial contribution towards travel and subsistence to attend the ICCT conference, plus a waiver for conference registration fees.
Qualified PhD students interested in in this award for participation in the 22nd ICCT (ICCT 2012) to be held in Búzios, Brasil, 5 -10 August 2012, should apply.
1) The (preliminary) title of his/her PhD dissertation, and the title of the presentation intended to be given at the ICCT conference, including a 1-page abstract also containing affiliation and e-mail address.
2) A curriculum vitae of the student providing an overview of academic activities, such as academic degrees obtained so far, a list of graduate courses attended and, if any, of scientific conferences attended (with information on oral communications and/or posters presented), etc.
3) A letter of support from the dissertation supervisor
