As some of you already know, I’m involved in organizing committee of FOSS4G Bucharest(https://2019.foss4g.org/), flag event of the open geospatial community(OSGeo). Maybe you can pass the below info to your academic contacts to allow more students to come. Our company is also a sponsor of the event.
With support of OSGeo&sponsors, the organizing committee runs a travel grant program to allow students with low income to participate. The second phase of the program is targeting Central and South EEU(Albania, Belarus, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine) and the main benefits are: supporting ticket costs and a grant of 200 Euro or 400 Euro to fit travel & accommodation costs. The call is open until 17th of May, and details can be found under https://www.osgeo.org/foundation-news/foss4g-2019-travel-grant-programme-phase-2-for-local-applicants/
