Financial assistance for conferences

Modified : novembre 13, 2012 at 17:12

The ED SEG offers financial assistance to its doctoral students (on the condition of co-funding by the associated research institute) for any presentation to national or international conferences or workshops that are authoritative in the discipline. Co-funding can also be provided for participation in Summer schools organised in France or overseas universities, in accordance with the same conditions.

A few important rules to follow:

  • Any financial assistance from the Graduate School is conditional on the doctoral student’s current enrolment
  • All funding from the Graduate School is subordinate to co-funding from the research institute
  • For conferences and workshops only presenting participants are eligible for co-funding
  • Students must follow the rules regarding travel of the University to which their research institute is attached. This may mean completing a specific authorisation from their research institute.
  • All requests must include a detailed budget for each expense. The Graduate School and the research institute cannot share the same expense.
  • The amount offered by the Graduate School is a maximal amount and will be limited to the receipts provided upon return.
  • All Graduate School funding is granted within the limit of the amount provided for that expense in its annual budget.
  • ED SEG reserves the right to refuse funding if the doctoral student has not followed the program in which they are enrolled.
  • In the case of group presentation, the Graduate School can only provide funding for one of the authors/presenters.
  • The Graduate School will give prioritise requests based on the quality of the conferences in question.
