Request for sponsorship
This year as well the organizers offered financial support to delegates from low-income countries who submitted an abstract or a poster and who were related to the sanitation field through their affiliation, employer and/or studies. The sponsorship was made possible by the kind help of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland who granted financing for the sponsorship. The Ministry has been a vital part of the conference since the beginning in 2003. We sponsored all together 41 delegates attendance in the conference. The sponsorship did not cover all the expenses and all the delegates were required to pay the remaining costs by themselves.
Those in need of sponsorship were requested to fill in the sponsorship application form where they briefly explained why they think their participation should be supported, as well as provided accurate contact information of their affiliation. You can find the application word-file here.
