Special Prize at the Nationwide Conference of Scientific Student Associations

The Foundation for Natural Sciences Education in Memoriam Szabó Szabolcs (the Foundation) offers a special prize among participating students at the Learning and Teaching Methods and Knowledge Technology Section of the 34th Nationwide Conference of Scientific Student Associations in 2019. We support participation and holding a lecture at an international conference of teaching methodology or education technology in natural sciences or mathematics.

The value of the prize is HUF 350.000 net. The prize may be split among several recipients. The Foundation covers the conference registration fee and travel and accommodation expenses up to the sum approved. The support may also be used for post-financing (conference participation already under organization).

The Professional Committee of the Learning and Teaching Methods and Knowledge Technology Section of the 34th Nationwide Conference of Scientific Student Associations in 2019 will decide about selecting one or more research papers based on the presented lecture related to natural sciences or mathematics. The prize will be given out at the Nationwide Conference. The Professional Committee reserves the right not to give out any prize or to split the sum among several participants.

The student(s) receiving the prize must undertake to hold a lecture in a foreign language at an international conference. The student(s) must also undertake to report in a lecture afterwards in Hungary about the experience and impressions of the conference. The Learning and Teaching Methods and Knowledge Technology Section of the 35th Nationwide Conference in 2021 wishes to provide opportunity for such a report.
Students who received similar support from the Foundation in 2018 will report about their experience at international conferences at the Learning and Teaching Methods and Knowledge Technology Section of the 34th Nationwide Conference in 2019.

Subject to resources, the Foundation is planning to publish similar tenders to support participation at international conferences regularly in future years.
