The ÖGAI supports young scientists through scholarships.

In 2022, young ÖGAI members up to their 35th birthday will again have the chance to support their active participation in a scientific (also hybrid) event by receiving 5 travel grants of 500,- Euro each, as well as 20 grants of 100,- Euro each for the registration fees at virtual congresses.

In addition to the ÖGAI membership, the active presentation of a subject-specific abstract at the respective event is also a prerequisite. One and the same congress contribution may only be submitted once for a travel grant. The scholarships can be applied for before and after the congress (provided that all documents are available).

For recipients of the travel grants, the use of the ÖGAI logo in their presentations is mandatory, as well as the reference to ÖGAI support on the poster, or on the last slide. You are welcome to request the ÖGAI logo from our office via email:

Applications including a completed application form, the submitted abstract, confirmation of a presentation, and a short CV should be submitted as a single overall pdf document of reduced size in electronic format to the ÖGAI Secretariat ( The review of the applications is done by the Executive Board of the Society. In case of an award, a confirmation of participation in the congress has to be submitted.

Travel grants will only be awarded to ÖGAI members under 35 years of age.
Deadlines for submission are May 15 and November 15 of each year.
