The Travel Grant application deadline has now passed.

We are pleased to provide Travel Grants to help EACR members who need financial assistance to attend the conference and present their work as an oral or poster presentation. Each Travel Grant includes a free registration and funds to support travel and accommodation costs. There is no maximum amount you can apply for, but we expect applicants to choose the best value travel and accommodation possible, and we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to cover the full amount that applicants have applied for.

Eligibility for an EACR Travel Grant

  • Applicants must have submitted an abstract for the conference through the conference website.

  • Travel Grants are targeted at individuals who, without additional funding, would not be able to attend the conference. Please consider your financial need before applying and demonstrate it in your application.

You must also meet one of the two eligibility categories below:

  • Student and Early Career EACR members with less than four years postdoctoral experience. Exceptions may be made in the case of members who have had a professional break, such as illness or parental leave.


  • EACR members working or studying in the field of cancer research, who are based in a country with a low- or middle-income economy, as defined by the World Bank. Click here and scroll down to see the current list on the World Bank website.

The IACR is offering up to 100 registration bursaries of €175 to help researchers who need financial assistance to attend the conference and present their work as an oral or poster presentation. Applicants must be early career IACR members based at an institution on the island of Ireland.
