The European Conference of Science Journalism has a limited amount of travel grants to support science journalists to attend the conference. The grant supports up to EUR 500 for travel, accommodation and the registration fee for the conference.

Please note: the amount of grants is limited. If you have other sources of funding, such as your employer’s travel budgets, please pursue those first to maximize the funds available to your fellow science journalists.
