11th European Feminist Research Conference – Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become an AtGender member?
You can apply for membership here. Membership entails many benefits, including reduced rates at this conference. Depending on your employment status, you can apply for the reduced individual membership.
How long does my AtGender membership last?
Regardless of the month you pay, your membership will last twelve months.
If my institution is a member, shall I become a member?
We encourage all participants to become members if they have the opportunity. But please also note that institutional members are offered reduced fees for three people of their choice.
Please note that the AtGender membership and conference fees are two different payments. The fees cover only the conference costs (organization, keynotes, catering).
How can I apply for the reduced fees?
AtGender members are eligible for reduced fees in all categories. To access reduced fees, you must become a member of AtGender and then pay the conference fee that corresponds to your status.
Do I qualify for the “precarious scholar” fee or the “student” fee?
If you have a temporary employment contract, you are considered a precarious scholar.
If you are a funded PhD student, you are also considered a precarious scholar. If you are not funded, you are eligible to pay the student fee (and apply for a reduced individual membership at AtGender).
If you do not have any income, you are eligible for the student fee (in which case you can also apply to become an AtGender member paying as a student here).
I have difficulties in paying conference fees, travel and accommodation expenses. What can I do?
AtGender will offer a limited number of travel grants (to be announced at a later stage). We are also trying to create a solidarity fund. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com explaining your situation if you are encountering financial hardships.
How can I apply for travel grants?
The process to apply for travel grants will be announced soon. Please note that you must become an AtGender member to apply for the travel grants.
