Financial Support

International Kimberlite Conferences have a proud history of awarding significant financial support, typically for more than thirty individuals, primarily students, to attend each conference.

The 12th International Kimberlite Conference is pleased to continue this tradition and consider applications for financial support from graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. Support might also be offered to some retired persons, young industry geologists and other applicants subject to documented needs and the availability of funds.

Applicants should first register for the conference by Wednesday 20 December 2023 (including a 10% non-refundable deposit on the full delegate conference registration fee). All applicants for financial support must then submit at least one short abstract as first and presenting author through the 12 IKC online submission system with their request for an oral and/or poster presentation(s). 

Financial support is intended primarily to cover the costs of the following (listed in the order in which they will be awarded):

  1. Balance of 12 IKC Conference Delegate Registration Fee
  2. Accommodation in Yellowknife, NWT
  3. Travel to and from Yellowknife, NWT

Completed Application Forms should be submitted via e-mail to the 12 IKC Conference Coordinator ([email protected]) by Wednesday 20 December 2023.

  • CV
  • list of publications
  • submitted short abstract(s), and
