UNU-EGOV Scholarships


Authors of accepted papers can apply for a UNU-EGOV Scholarship, which will offer the following:

  • free conference registration (does not include Workshops and Conference Dinner);
  • lump sum of $300 USD (through bank transfer after the conference).

Please note that accommodation and travel costs are not covered by the Scholarship. All authors are expected to cover these costs themselves. As such, we advise that all necessary accommodation, visa applications, and travel arrangements are made as early as possible.

Since the number of Scholarships is limited, the preference will be given to authors who fill the following criteria:

  • are students (undergraduate, ongoing master’s degree or PhD);
  • are from a developing country.

According to data from The World Bank, we will consider developing countries the ones categorized as low-income, lower-middle-income, and upper-medium-income countries.

If a paper is co-authored, only one author can apply for the Scholarship. Please do not apply yourself if one of your co-authors has already done so. This may lead to both applications being nullified.

You can apply for the Scholarship until 5 January 2019 (23:59 UTC). Any application submitted past this date will not be considered. The decision will be emailed to all applicants on 11 January 2019. In case of acceptance, the author will be sent an acceptance letter by UNU-EGOV, which will contain all necessary details.
