Travel Grant

AgentLink III can provide a small number of travel grants to selected students from the New Accession States in which travel funds for events such as this are limited. Students from the New Accession States in Eastern and Central Europe and students from other countries in that region and nearby are encouraged to apply for these grants, by sending an email to Wiebe van der Hoek ( wiebe@csc.liv.ac.uk ) mentioning:

  • the Department of the student
  • the research area of the student
  • a paragraph mentioning why EASSS'05 is important to attend

In addition to this, the supervisor of the student should send an e-mail acknowledging the student is registered as a full time student, and the application for a grant is supported (this should also go to wiebe@csc.liv.ac.uk ).

Students from the above mentioned regions are encouraged to apply for these grants, by sending an email to Wiebe van der Hoek ( wiebe@csc.liv.ac.uk ) BEFORE 21st of May

In addition to this, the supervisor of the student should send an e-mail acknowledging the student is registered as a full time student, and the application for a grant is supported (this should also go towiebe@csc.liv.ac.uk , also BEFORE 1st of May).

Accommodation & Travel Expense Claim Process

AgentLink expense claims should be submitted for actual expenditure incurred *after* the event, for no more than the maximum amount awarded to you. You should retain all actual original receipts of your expenditure (ie, credit card receipts will NOT be accepted).

Any travel, food and accommodation expenses must be reasonable, and travel must be at economy-class. If you expend more than the amount awarded, we will not be able to compensate you for this additional expenditure.

Reimbursement will only be for actual incurred and relevant expenditures, as outlined on the claim form itself, which can be downloaded from the AgentLink III web-page .

Please note that all claims should be submitted by post within 4 weeks of the end of the event. In the case of queries, please contact:
