  • Geospatial World Forum (or any Regional Geospatial Forum)
  • GI_Forum
  • Geodesign Summit EU
  • QGIS International U&D Conference
  • Other international geospatial events can be suggested for consideration


  • The grant is a lump sum of 500 Euro per student
  • Previous GEG grant recipients are not eligible
  • The grant is a co-contribution based on actual costs
  • the grant will be disbursed to the student after attending the event and submitting all information/documentation required
