Are you eager to attend the International Society for Equitation Science (ISES) conference in New Zealand in 2024 but concerned about the costs? We have great news for you! ISES is offering travel grants to help individuals attend the upcoming conference. Here's what you need to know:

What Are ISES Travel Grants?

ISES travel grants are financial awards designed to assist individuals in attending the 2024 conference in New Zealand. These grants aim to ease some of the financial burden associated with conference participation.

How Many Grants Are Available and How Much Are They Worth?

ISES will award up to five travel grants, each worth up to £1000. These grants can significantly contribute to covering your travel expenses.

How Are Grant Applications Evaluated?

Applications for these grants will be assessed based on two main criteria:

  1. Purpose of Attendance: Applicants must explain why attending the conference is crucial for them. This could include reasons such as presenting research, gaining knowledge, or networking with experts.

  2. Financial Need: The selection committee will consider applicants' financial circumstances to determine how the grant can assist them.

ISES is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion within the equitation science. Therefore, at least one grant will be awarded to an applicant representing a historically underrepresented group. This reflects ISES's dedication to fostering inclusivity within the field.

Who Can Apply for These Grants?

ISES travel grants are open to anyone interested in attending the conference. You do not need to have submitted research abstracts to be eligible. Whether you are a student, researcher, or professional in the field, if you have a passion for equitation science and wish to attend the conference, you can apply for a grant.

Key Dates to Remember

  • Application Deadline: Make sure to submit your application by 31st October 2023 to be considered for a grant.
