Attending an international conference during your study or PhD programme can be a great way to open yourself up to new knowledge and make new connections. Presenting your research findings is an essential part of the experience. Unfortunately, conferences are often far away and therefore expensive in terms of travel costs. On top of that, there are conference fees and accommodation costs. The KNCV has a fund to help cover these costs, known as the Fellinga Fund.
The maximum amount the fund will pay is EUR 750 for conferences outside Europe and EUR 450 for conferences in Europe. Half of the amount is paid out prior to departure. The remainder is paid out after the conference, after the participant submits a brief report and an expense claim form.
