Awards will be sufficient to cover the cheapest airfare to Aalborg (with a US carrier when possible), modest room and board in Aalborg, and a special reduced registration fee for the YRS and ICMP available to grantees. Participants will be expected to attend BOTH the Young Researchers Symposium and the ICMP 2012.
