Travel Grant application deadline: 06 March 2023

We're awarding Travel Grants to assist members of the European Association for Cancer Research who need financial assistance to attend the Congress and present their work as an oral or poster presentation. Each EACR Travel Grant includes a free registration and funds to support travel and accommodation costs. 

We have two eligibility categories:

  • Student and Early Career EACR members with less than 4-years postdoctoral experience
  • All EACR members based in countries with a low- or middle-income economy

PLUS additional Travel Grants for EACR members in Turkey and Syria. Click here or scroll down for more information.

Membership starts at just €25 for students. Click here to find out more and join online.


  • You are a current EACR member. Find out more. The EACR aims to be inclusive: we may be able to offer reduced membership fees for researchers from low/lower middle-income economies (as defined by the World Bank) or who have extenuating circumstances. To ask about this please contact our membership team.
  • Travel Grants are targeted at members who, without additional funding, would not be able to attend the congress. Please consider your financial need before applying and demonstrate it in your application.
  • Applicants must have submitted an abstract for the Congress on the Congress website.

You must also meet one of the criteria below:

  • Student and Early Career EACR members with less than four years postdoctoral experience. Exceptions may be made in the case of members who have had a professional break, such as illness or parental leave.
  • EACR members who are based in a country with a low- or middle-income economy, as defined by the World Bank. Click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the current list on the World Bank website.
  • EACR members currently based in Turkey or Syria

Additional Travel Grants for EACR members based in Turkey and Syria

We've allocated extra EACR funding in 2023 to help members in Turkey and Syria attend the Congress. This is one way we're trying to help researchers in these countries after the disastrous earthquake of February 2023.

EACR members currently based in Turkey and Syria should apply for a Travel Grant in the usual way, following the instructions on this page.
