ESEB Conference Travel Award
These stipends are for students and young scientists to attend the ESEB 2017 congress in Groningen, Netherlands (http://www.eseb2017.nl/) or the Evolution 2017 conference in Portland, Oregon, USA (http://www.evolutionmeetings.org/). The stipend will contribute to covering travel, living expenses and congress registration fees. The award will be paid out as a reimbursement after the meeting, based on specification of the expenses.
Closing date: Sunday, 15 January 2017
- Applicants must be ESEB members (for becoming a member of ESEB, click here).
- Applications can be submitted by scientists at various stages of their professional career (e.g., Masters and PhD students, postdocs, and lecturers).

- People who already received an ESEB travel stipend during the last five years are not eligible.
