Geohost Support Program

The Geohost Support Program is designed to enable deserving geoscientists and geoscience students to participate in the International Geological Congress (IGC). Under this program that has helped thousands of scientists to attend IGC’s over the years, we would be providing support to meritorious young/financially disadvantaged geocientists and students to participate and present their research at the 36th IGC in Delhi.

Geohost Support on offer:
The Geohost Support Program of the 36th IGC will strive to help active geoscientist whose abstract has been accepted for presentation. Financial support will be provided based exclusively on scientific merit.

As per our commitment made in the bid document presented at the 34th IGC in Brisbane, the Geohost program would be unprecedented, comprising 1000 registration fee waiver, 1000 travel support and 1000 local hospitality, which may be awarded as either full or partial support. This will include the Youth Geohost program under which meritorious students from IUGS-adhering countries would be offered fully funded Geo-host grant (one per country) for participation in the 36th IGC. Details of eligibility criteria and application procedure will be published soon at

With industry support anticipated, we should be able to offer Geohost support to more number of aspiring geoscientists. We encourage potential applicants to seek financial support from other sources before applying for Geohost support.
