PARTICIPATION AND TRAVEL GRANTS

To be considered for a grant, you need to submit an application, with file name:

NLS2017-grant-application-Your-Names.pdf

via EasyChair on this link:


On the bottom of the submission page of EasyChair, under Topics, you need to check the box "Grant application", before uploading your application.

The application must contain the following documents, in one PDF document:

(1) Letter of Application for a grant, stating your logic-related interests
(2) academic records or transcripts of courses taken so far that demonstrate your background in logic
(3) Letter of Recommendation from your current or most recent supervisor

----
Note 1: In case your recommender prefers to send the recommendation directly, she/he should send it as an email attachment of a pdf file named:

Letter-of-Recommendation-Your-Names.pdf

to the following email address:


Email Subject: Letter-of-Recommendation-Your-Name.pdf

Note 2: "Your-Names" should be your actual first and family name, without spaces.
