Awards for Junior Scholars from Developing Economies

Following APRIA tradition, we plan to provide limited financial aid to selected junior authors from developing economies whose papers are selected for the program. Platinum and gold sponsors of the Second World Congress have made available these awards. The number and amount of awards will depend on the funds available and the countries the corporate sponsors may designate.
Those who are eligible for consideration will be
within three years from having received a doctoral degree or currently a doctoral degree candidate, are from a developing economy, and receive no financial support from their universities, government or other entities for the attendance of the Second World Congress. The award assists the recipients with meeting the conference registration fee (excluding the membership fee to their respective association) and the payment for their accommodation expenses on a two-person-sharing basis for five nights at a reasonably priced hotel near the conference venue. The award does not cover travel and other expenses. 
The applicant for the aid must indicate his/her desire to apply for the aid and e-mail the respective Scientific Committee Chair: (1) a full paper or a detailed proposal meeting the above proposal submission requirements and (2) curricular vitae,
TBA 2015 (the proposal deadline). Successful applicants will be notified of results on or about TBA 2015.
