The IAU wishes to support qualified scientists to whom only limited means of support are available, e.g., colleagues from economically less privileged countries and young scientists. An IAU grant should be the seed money in ensuring the participation of a selected beneficiary, including participants with young children, rather than adding comfort for colleagues whose attendance is already assured. - Rules and Guidelines for IAU Scientific Meetings
Everyone except invited speakers can apply, as long as they provide a contribution and justification (following IAU rules).
