The EGU is committed to promoting the participation of both early career scientists and established researchers from low and middle-income countries who wish to present their work at the EGU General Assembly. In order to encourage participation of scientists from both these groups, a limited amount of the overall budget of the EGU General Assembly is reserved to provide financial support to those who wish to attend the meeting.
In honour of Roland Schlich, who was instrumental in the formation of EGU, the travel awards will, from now on, be known as the Roland Schlich travel support scheme. Roland, who passed away in 2016, was executive secretary (2002–2004), treasurer (2005–2015), and one of the founders of the Union.
From 2005 to 2018, the total amount awarded grew from about €50k to €110k, with 291 awards being allocated in 2018 to support attendance to the 2018 General Assembly, representing a 31% application success rate. For the 2019 General Assembly, the EGU has allocated €120k to financially support scientists who wish to attend the meeting. About 80-90% of the funds are reserved to assist early career scientists in attending the conference, whilst the remaining funds will be allocated to established scientists.
