  • Information about his/her accepted ICRA 2023 papers.

Estimated costs in the application process should be made in USD.

Applications are reviewed on a competitive basis with priority given to younger members, and members from under-represented groups and regions.

In order for an award recipient to claim the travel grant – that can be in the range of US$750 to US$1250 – he/she must provide proof of attendance (registration) and of travel (boarding passes and ticket receipt). Instructions regarding the reimbursement process will be provided at a later date.

Members who submitted an application in the first round and were added to the waiting list will automatically be reconsidered for this second round and do not need to make a second application.
