Accommodation and Travel Grant:

We have a limited number of fixed-amount travel and accommodation grants for PhD students, postdoc researchers and early career scholars (within 5 years of completion of studies) from outside Türkiye. Since we are particularly keen to encourage people to join in person, the opportunity for virtual participation will be restrained by strict conditions, such as being unable to get a visa or having support to travel.
