IAFOR Academic Grants and Scholarships

About IAFOR's Grants and Scholarships

IAFOR is dedicated to helping young scholars achieve their research and academic goals, while also encouraging them to apply the principles of interdisciplinary study to their work.

IAFOR offers travel and accommodation grants and full or partial scholarships covering conference registration fees to select postgraduate students and early career academics who might not otherwise have the financial resources to be able to attend our academic conferences.

Who can receive an IAFOR grant or scholarship?

Awards are based on the appropriateness of the educational opportunity in relation to the applicant’s field of study, financial need, and contributions to their community and to IAFOR’s mission of interdisciplinarity. Scholarships will be awarded based on availability of funds from IAFOR and will vary with each conference.

How are recipients of an IAFOR grant or scholarship selected?

The Conference Committee of The 4th European Conference on Aging & Gerontology will award scholarships to eligible applicants who have submitted exceptional abstracts that have passed the blind peer-review process and been accepted for presentation at the conference.

How can I apply for an IAFOR grant or scholarship?

If you are eligible for an IAFOR grant or scholarship and would like to be considered, please submit your abstract via the Call for Papers page and select the checkbox for the relevant award during the submission process. Abstracts must be submitted by the initial submission deadline in order to be considered for funding. Applicants will be notified of results within four weeks of the deadline.
