In keeping with the spirit of open access and inclusiveness, the NDLTD offers travel scholarships to delegates in need of financial assistance to attend the ETD symposium. Travel scholarships are awarded based on need and reviewed according to NDLTD Conference Handbook guidelines. Scholarships may cover some or all transportation, registration and lodging costs.

Travel scholarship recipients are typically individuals from U.N. developing regions and/or graduate students and/or awards program winners. Submitting a proposal to present a paper or poster (or willingness to do so) and providing at least some local funding support to supplement the travel grant will increase the likelihood of travel support. A required post-conference survey will be collected to assess the outcomes of delegate attendance.
