The grants are awarded by a Selection Committee that includes representatives of Event, EMF Board of Trustees and EMYA Jury.

The travel grants are not accountable: it is up to a grantee whether the money is spent for travel, accommodation or participation fee (early-bird registration fee is applied). No financial report is required, however the winners of travel grants are requested to complete a short article (300-500 words) on the event, describing what they got out of attending EMYA, which we can be used on our website.

The winners of the travel grants shall attend, in person, the annual conference and award ceremony for the whole time of the duration of these events. In the case of a failure to attend the conference, the grant will be returned to EMF by the grantee and given over to the next person on the list.
