All participants are strongly encouraged to seek financial support from their own institutions, other national bodies, local representatives of international donors, international institutions and foundations active in the population field. While the IUSSP and the NOC hope to provide a limited number of travel awards, priority for these awards will be given to participants from low-income countries whose paper or poster has been accepted for the scientific programme, or who are serving as chair or discussant, and who are IUSSP members in good standing (read more).
