My paper has been accepted at a conference but I do not have the funds to attend, can I apply for a conference grant?

The Wenner-Gren Foundation DOES NOT provide funds to individuals to travel to conferences, even if they have been invited to present a paper. All conference and workshop grants are made to the organizers of the event, who then use this money to fund their list of partcipants. If you are hoping to attend a conference or present a paper, either internationally or within you own country, the Foundation will not be able to assist you.
