ESEB Conference Travel Award

These stipends are for students and young scientists to attend the Evolution meeting of ASN/SSB/SSE in Cleveland, OH, on 19-23 June 2020. The stipend will contribute to covering travel, living expenses, and early bird congress registration fees. Note that the registration fee will be 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.

DEADLINE: 15 March 2020

Eligibility:

  • Applicants must be ESEB members before the deadline (for becoming an ESEB member, please visit https://eseb.org/society/membership/).
  • 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 received an ESEB travel stipend in the last five years are not eligible.
  • Applicants must submit to present either an oral communication or a poster to be eligible for the stipend. 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.
