Travel Awards

Please note we will be providing travel awards intended to cover travel and accommodation expenses for some people who will be attending this satellite SMBE meeting. Deadline for submission of travel award applications is the same as general registration.

How to apply

The abstract submission form includes an option to also apply for travel awards. To be eligible to apply for an award, you will also need to submit an abstract for either a talk or a poster, and a short motivation statement why we should chose you for an award. You will be notified about whether you receive a travel award a few weeks after the application deadline, at the time when talk/poster acceptance is announced.

Early-career travel awards

These awards are intended to subsidize travel and accommodation costs for graduate students and postdocs. Candidates should provide proof of student or post-doc status, and a short justification of why they need this award in order to attend.

Travel awards for underrepresented groups

These awards are intended to subsidize travel and accommodation costs for underrepresented groups. Applicants from all career stages will be considered for this award.

Posters

Poster printing support will be available to local students/ early career faculty.
