ESA Academy Student Sponsorship

ESA Academy Student Sponsorship

The ESA Education Office is pleased to sponsor the attendance of up to 3 tertiary education students to attend Clean Space Days 2024 in the frame of the ESA Academy Conference Student Sponsorship programme. The sponsorship will provide a maximum reimbursement of EUR 700 towards travel and accommodation expenses, which will be reimbursed via a single bank transfer after the event and will only be paid upon submission of receipts.

To be eligible for an ESA Academy Student Sponsorship, students must fulfil the following criteria at the time of application:

  • Individually submitted a poster abstract for the 2024 ESA Clean Space Days. The student scholarship will be awarded by an ESA panel on the grounds of technical merit and relevance of the abstract to the conference theme Towards a Sustainable Future in Space;
  • be minimum 18 years old at the time of the conference;
  • be a citizen of an ESA Member State, Canada, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia or Slovenia;
  • be enrolled as a student (Bachelors, Masters, or Ph.D.) in a tertiary education academic programme (not graduating before the Conference);
  • not benefit from an overlapping financial support to attend this conference, unless duly justified;
  • agree with the conditions of the ESA Academy’s Privacy Policy

Priority will be given to students who have less than 2 years of professional experience and have never taken part in an activity sponsored by the ESA Education Office. 

ESA is committed to achieving diversity and creating an inclusive environment. To this end, applications from all eligible candidates irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, beliefs, age, disability, social origin, or other characteristics are both encouraged and welcome.
