The mission of the IASSIST Fellows Committee, formerly International Outreach, is to provide support for data professionals from under-represented countries who are developing research data management and support infrastructures and implementing information policy decisions at their home institutions. IASSIST Fellows has provided financial assistance to over 50 conference participants from around the world since 1997.
Please be aware that funding is not intended to cover the entire cost of attending the conference. The applicant’s home institution must provide some level of financial support to supplement the IASSIST Fellow award. Strong preference will be given to first time participants and applicants from those countries currently with insufficient representation at IASSIST. Only fully completed applications will be accepted. Applicants submitting a paper will be given priority consideration for funding.
Please take care to respond to each question. Incomplete applications cannot be processed.
