Solidarity Fund

Solidarity Fund Application is Closed
Deadline for application was February 15, 2012
Decision on application is due by March 13, 2012. (extended). Each applicant will be notified in email by this time.

Conference Organizers, CEU Gender Studies and AtGender recognized that these are difficult financial times and that the conference fees, the trip to and stay in Budapest during the time of the conference may pose problems. Thus, with the goal of ensuring that the conference be as equal and inclusive as possible, a Solidarity Fund was created to provide support for participants.

Solidarity Fund can cover registration fees, accommodation and travel costs in full or partly. Technical details of the fund and pay-off will be announced in the acceptance notification.

Who can apply?

You can apply if you are a participant

  • whose abstract has been accepted for presentation, or
  • who are contributing to the conference in some other way (as poster presenters, round-table participants, chairs etc.), and
  • whose financial circumstances would otherwise render the participation in the conference a prohibitive burden
  • who is an AtGender member. All those who are not members (be it full, reduced, student or institutional membership which covers up to 3 institutional representatives) can become members before applying to the Fund (

Also, please note that conference participants who have already paid the registration fee and who qualify for the Solidarity Fund are also eligible to apply.
