As in previous years the SIC Board invites PhD students and junior scholars to apply for a travel grant to attend the XXXV SIC Symposium at Istanbul University (Turkey), 26 – 30 September 2016.
The goal is to encourage the participation of young researchers in an SIC Symposium. Up to three travel grants of $300 each will be awarded.

Special effort has also been made to keep the student registration fees as low as possible.
