SSEA Scholarships

We have set up a scholarship fund to help students pay the cost of registration and travel to the Symposium, with the aim of addressing equity and diversity goals. A limited amount of scholarships are thus available directly from us.

SSEA sponsorship covers the reimbursement of the early-bird student registration fee and provides a maximum reimbursement towards travel and accommodation of €500 (payable on production of receipts).

For any inquiry regarding the scholarship fund, please contact us at
