Call for Application: John Shenk Travel Grants for NIR-2023

The ICNIRS offers travel awards for student delegates to participate in the council’s international conference in 2023. Funding for the awards is made possible because of the donation of a significant portion of the profits from the previous ICNIRS conference and is dependent on the financial success of the previous conference

Funding for the NIR-2023 conference in Austria is possible because of the donation of profits from the organizers of the NIR-2019 conference in Australia and the NIR-2021 conference in China. The ICNIRS will look most favorably on student applicants.
