Travel Grants

Dear colleagues of the Austrian Society for Allergology and Immunology!

 The Austrian Society of Allergology and Immunology awards five travel grants, amounting to Euro 500,-- each to members of the Society to support their participation at international congresses. The grant is meant to serve as sponsoring for early-career scientists. Applicants may not be older than 35 years. Another prerequisite is the presentation of an abstract at the given conference. We would also like to point out that one and the same presentation can be used only once to apply for a travel grant. The grant can be applied for either before (if all documentation is presented) or after the chosen conference.

The executive board requires that the ÖGAI logo appears on posters and/or oral presentations as well as on the first page of the presentation so as to create more visibility also internationally of our society. On posters the ÖGAI logo should appear on the right hand top corner. The logo size used should be 8 cm by 8 cm. Recipients of ÖGAI travel grants must use the logo on their presentations. At the bottom end of the poster or on the last page of their presentation a reference mentioning the support received by ÖGAI is required as well.

Applications consisting of one compressed pdf-file that include the filled-in application form, the submitted abstract, the confirmation of presentation and a short CV need to be sent electronically to the ÖGAI office ( The application is evaluated by the executive board of the society. If the travel grant is awarded, a certificate of attendance of the congress needs to be submitted.

The travel grants are awarded to ÖGAI members in good standing only.

Applications can be handed in twice a year, by May 15th or by November 15th.
