- This Conference is sponsored by the European Physical Society, which entitles some participants to apply individually for EPS funds. Please apply directly in (click) www.eps.org/?page=grant_im_travel. The processing of these applications requires advance planning.
- Women from developing and eastern European countries may apply to the IUPAP/UNESCO travel grant program. See the IUPAP Working Group of Women in Physicw web site. Please check deadline, which is early this year.
- The Institute "Carlos I", as well as some other local institutions, will distribute some limited funds to support students and researchers wishing to attend the Seminar. Preference will be given to the best students and young researchers, particularly from developing countries, and to those needing only partial support. These grants will usually consist in paying for some of the local expenses (lodging and/or fees) of the applicant.
- Scientists that are nationals from Iberoamerica and other countries might find some funding hints from the Spanish Agencia Española de Cooperción Internacional para el Desarrollo. See the AECID web site or, more specifically, click HERE. Those from Iberoamérica might like to check for other possibilities at the Asociación Universitaria Iberoamericana de Postgrado.
- Students following official master or doctorate degrees in Spain may apply the Spanish Ministry for mobility grants in their own University.
- Some students and researchers from the University of Granada will be waived from paying the registration fee; please apply as indicated below.
- The Granada Seminar is also part of the scheduled summer courses of the University of Granada, which entitles to ask for some of the specific grants of the "Centro Mediterráneo" for the purpose; see conditions HERE (this page is only in Spanish, sorry).
Please apply, depending on the funding agency, either to the specific site (cases 1, 2, 4, 5 and 7) or else as indicated below (cases 3 and 6).
