ASQ Programme Travel Grants: special grants for young abstract authors coming from developing countries
A certain number of grants will be given to presenting authors of accepted abstracts (younger than 45) coming from developing countries (GDP less than USD 10,000 a year – World Bank database).
The number of grants should not be more than 10, with a minimum of 4, for each Congress: the final number will depend on how many replies will be received to the Congress survey (“Altruistic Survey by Questionnaire” – ASQ) sent the year before (normally, for each 200 replies, one grant will be given).
The Grant consists of a free Congress membership and a contribution of EUR 300.00 to help meet the travel expenses to attend the Congress.
The final selection of the winners will be done by the PSC (Paper Selection Committee) Chair taking into consideration the following parameters:
- Age of the presenting author of the abstract (preference will be given to the younger authors);
- The GDP of the Country of residence (preference will be given to the Countries with lower GDP);
- The world geographical area: the geographical area of the selected winners must be distributed as equally as possible;
- Quality of the abstract (preference will be given to the better abstracts).
