The International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG/AIG) will cover the costs for Registration Fee to the grant winners.

The grants are devoted to support the active participation (oral or poster presentation) of 2 early career researchers* whose interests intersect with those of the two associations, generally in the area of glacial and periglacial research.
