Scholarships for Events on Complex Systems (SECS)
The yrCSS wants to encourage young scientists to participate in complex systems events. SECS are conceived for this very purpose. Scholarship for Events on Complex Systems provides financial support for young researchers attending conferences, workshops, schools, symposiums or other scientific events related to complex systems.
The scholarship has a form of reimbursement: it covers some costs associated with attending scientific events. These include the registration fee, travel expenses like flights or train tickets, visa applications, among others.

SECS provides support in the form of reimbursement for young researchers attending scientific events related to complex systems. We can reimburse up to 300 euros for.covering intracontinental events and up to 500 euros for intercontinental events or early career researchers from universities in emergent nations.
The candidate will be required to send us proof of payment and confirmation of attendance. The scholarships are paid after the event.
