Dear Colleague,

The Galaxies 2021 Travel Awards have been postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. The application period is still open, and the new submission deadline is 31st August 2021.

The applications will be assessed by an Evaluation Committee consisting of senior scholars from the Galaxies Editorial Board.

This prize provides financial support for the winners to attend an international conference (physical or virtual) in the fields of astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology to be held in 2021, where they will deliver a presentation, present a poster, or both.


  • Candidates must be postdoctoral fellows or PhD students involved in astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology, broadly defined as any discipline covered within the scope of Galaxies.
  • Candidates must have plans to attend an international conference (physical or virtual) in 2021 (oral presentation or poster).

Required application documents:

  • Outline of current and future research;
  • CV, including a complete list of publications;
  • Details of the conference to be attended (conference name and website) and an abstract of the work that will be presented;
  • Letter of recommendation from their supervisor, research director, or department head, which also confirms the applicant’s status as a postdoctoral fellow/PhD student.

The award will be CHF 800 (Swiss francs) for each winner, with two winners in total.

Please apply before 31st August 2021. The winners will be announced at the end of September 2021.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact [email protected]. We look forward to receiving your application.

Kind regards,
