"IAS sponsorship for sedimentology students"
The 18th International Congress on the Carboniferous and Permian in Kazan is partially sponsored by the International Association of Sedimentologists (IAS), and therefore IAS student Members can request travel grants.
IAS Student Members can apply for a travel grant through the IAS website (http://www.sedimentologists.org/). Applications can be submitted until 10 June 2015; after the deadline the application page closes automatically. The application procedure is simple and requires submitting a short letter of justification together with some specific details regarding location, travel distance, affiliation, etc.
After approval, successful travel grant applicants will be informed by the Office of the IAS Treasurer.
Given the difficult situation with money transfer between Europe and Russia, travel grants will be transferred to student bank accounts after the conference, or paid in cash by a representative at the end of the congress after signing of a receipt.
