WIA-Europe is pleased to announce that the Deadline for Applications for its 2016 (1st semester) Grants Programme has been extended till 19 February 2016.

Are you interested in applying for a grant to attend an aerospace conference or workshop in 2016? The deadline for submissions for the first semester of 2016 is 19 February 2016.

WIA-Europe would like to encourage and support upcoming talent – young professionals and students alike – and for this we have set up a grants programme.

The programme provides grants of €500 to cover attendance at aerospace workshops and conferences and is intended to support new and young colleagues with their first experiences in presenting a paper in an international context.

Applicants should be WIA-Europe members.

Applicants should send a short CV and the abstract of the paper they intend to present to executive.director@wia-europe.org. Papers should be formally accepted by the conference in which they are supposed to be presented, and the letter of acceptance emailed along with the application. The size of the application package should not exceed 1MB. WIA-Europe will acknowledge the reception of the application via email.

Submissions related to all aerospace disciplines are welcome.

Successful applicants will be informed via e-mail. Along with the grant of €500 for the conference, they will also win a year-long free membership to WIA-Europe for the following year. They will also be requested to give a short presentation of their work at the next WIA Europe General Assembly or event.
