Student Lecture Tours allow students to participate in a half-day course
taught by expert geoscientists. In 2018 the ESF supported tours in Europe
and Asia Pacific, resulting in lectures at 12 different universities.
In order to gain support from the ESF, a student tour requires a declaration
of interest from several universities from the same region. This proposal
can come from both the university itself or a student chapter willing to
organise the lecture. The ESF accepts hosting applications throughout the
year. However, we recommend universities and chapters to make these
declarations well before the start of the academic year.

A declaration of interest to host does not automatically mean the ESF will
award the request as it depends on the availability of the lecturer, topic
and interests of other universities in the same country or region.
If approved, the ESF support covers fee and travel costs of the
instructor. It cannot make contributions to catering, room rental or
equipment for the lecture.
