Karl-Heinz Böckstiegel Foundation Scholarship Program to attend ICCA 2024 Hong Kong

ICCA is pleased to support the Karl-Heinz Böckstiegel Foundation Scholarship Program, which offers financial assistance to young arbitration academics to attend the ICCA Congress from 5 to 8 May 2024 in Hong Kong. The Foundation is a non-profit organisation established in 2021 by Karl-Heinz Böckstiegel, a longstanding member of the ICCA Governing Board and contributor to ICCA's publications and Congresses.

The program is open to young academics who have already worked on arbitration projects (e.g., a PhD thesis) and who would otherwise not be able to attend the ICCA Congress.

Winners of the Scholarship will receive a Congress registration fee waiver and a reasonable contribution towards travel to the Congress venue and hotel accommodation during the Congress.
