Progressive Palaeontology Travel Grants

We have launched our crowdfunder to help non-UK based students attend ProgPal 2017. Due to the student-led nature of the conference, many potential attendees struggle with funding. Therefore, we plan to raise extra money to support low-income and international students and allow them to gain valuable conference experience and networking opportunities that will hopefully encourage them to pursue their interest in academia and palaeontology. 

 

We are offering serveral donation options with rewards (see below) and hope to raise £600 GBP
