ESEB Conference Travel Award

These stipends are for students and young scientists to attend the joint Evolution congress in Montpellier, France (http://evolutionmontpellier2018.org/). The stipend will consist of a waiver of the conference registration fee (early bird rate at registration) and a contribution towards travel and living expenses (to be paid out as a reimbursement after the congress, based on specification of the expenses).

Deadline: 28 February 2018

ELIGIBILITY

  • Applicants must be ESEB members (for becoming an ESEB member, click here).
  • Applications can be submitted by scientists at various stages of their professional career (e.g., Masters and PhD students, postdocs, and lecturers).
  • Scientists working in a country with high GDP are not eligible (for the list of excluded countries see below).
  • People who already received an ESEB travel stipend during the last five years are not eligible.
  • Applicants must present either an oral communication or a poster at the respective meeting to be eligible for the award. This will be verified before the reimbursement, but no proof that a poster or talk is accepted is necessary at the application stage.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE STIPENDS ARE GIVEN IN CONJUNCTION WITH ANALOGOUS STIPENDS OFFERED BY THE SSE (separate call), SO THERE IS NO NEED TO APPLY TO BOTH!
