Hi, Phil--

The SEAMUS/EMF list is a good place to look for
opportunities abroad (emf.org). As for travel costs--hmmm.
Some competitions who will pay for the winner to show up,
but these are exceptions. Unless you have some sort of
institutional support (travel money associated with your
job, for example--or grant money, or a rich uncle who likes
your stuff), you are on your own.
