Conference Travel Award

These sti­pends are for stu­dents and young sci­ent­ists to attend the ESEB con­gress in Aug 2022 in Prague, CZ, the next EMPSEB meet­ing from 22–27 May 2022 in Espoo, FI, or the Evol­u­tion meet­ing of ASN/SSB/SSE in Clev­e­land, US, on 24–28 June, 2022. The sti­pend will con­trib­ute to cov­er­ing travel, liv­ing expenses, and early bird con­gress regis­tra­tion fees. Note that for par­ti­cipants of ESEB 2022, the regis­tra­tion fee will be dir­ectly waived by the con­gress organ­izers as part of the sti­pend. The (remain­ing) funds will be paid out as a reim­burse­ment after the con­gress, based on spe­cific­a­tion of the expenses.

Eligibility:

  • Applic­ants must be ESEB mem­bers before the dead­line (for becom­ing an ESEB mem­ber, please vis­it https://eseb.org/society/eseb-membership/).
