The EBSA fund may support up to about 20% of the School participants. In select cases the selection committee may grant the full cost of the early-bird fee, i.e. 640€.
Candidates from less research-intensive countries will be given priority for EBSA Grants. Please check the list of Inclusiveness Target Countries (http://www.cost.eu/about_cost/strategy/excellence-inclusiveness). Only in exceptional cases other candidates will be considered. The candidates affiliated to an institution in Croatia are not eligible.
