From September 22-27, 2019, recipients of the Abel Prize, ACM A.M. Turing Award, ACM Prize in Computing, Fields Medal, and the Nevanlinna Prize will gather in Heidelberg to meet with 200 young researchers from all over the world at the 7th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF). 

To get mathematicians and computer scientists some more recognition, the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) is giving travel grants for journalists to cover the event. Grants cover travel costs as well as board and accommodation during the stay in Heidelberg from September 21-28, 2019.

Unlike most, media affiliation (print, TV, online, radio) is not a disqualifying factor, so even if you are not at the BBC they will consider you, but the applications must include the following: a short CV, three samples of work (indicating respective medium), a synopsis of publications to date (indicating respective medium), planned contributions regarding the HLF as well as a preliminary travel itinerary including estimated costs.

Send travel grant applications to: media[at]heidelberg-laureate-forum.org until May 20, 2019.
