conference fellowships

From Psi-k

Psi-k has established a fund of 10'000 € to support refugee scientists from Ukraine and elsewhere who are currently being provided with temporary support including visiting affiliation with a European institution. This fund is available to all career stages from PhD students to established academics. These fellowships will cover:

  • Conference fees

  • Accommodation in Lausanne for the period of the conference

  • A contribution to travel and subsistence expenses


Applicants should send the following documents to the Psi-k Operations Manager:

  • A cover letter stating clearly that the applicant intends to participate fully in the Psi-k conference, the expected dates of travel with an estimate of travel costs, and the contact details for a senior member at their temporary host institution who will be asked to confirm their status.

  • (Optional) contribution title and abstract. Applicants are encouraged to provide a title and abstract of their proposed conference talk/poster.

  • CV of applicant.

There is no deadline for applications – starting from May 15, 2022, applications will be processed as they are received until the fund is exhausted.
