Travel fellowships

We are pleased to inform you that, thanks to the contributions from our sponsors, we will be able to provide travel fellowships to 4 students or young researchers wishing to attend ESCS2014.

Size of the travel fellowship

Successful applicants will be awarded up to 250€ to cover registration, travel and accommodation expenses. The money will be wired to an account after the symposium. In order to ensure the correct processing of the award, applicants are required to provide the organizers with copies of the relevant receipts (conference registration, travel expenses, hotel) during or shortly after the symposium (deadline 22 September 2014).

Requirements

To be eligible for a TF, you must:
- have submitted an abstract for an oral or a poster presentation to ESCS2014.
- NOT already be receiving a TF from ECCB2014.
- be associated with a university or a research institute as a student or researcher.

How to apply

To apply for a TF, please send an email to escs@iscbsc.org with the subject ’Travel Fellowship ESCS2014’ with the following:
- A motivation letter on why you wish to attend ESCS and why you require funding
- A copy of your curriculum vitae

You may also add a letter of recommendation but it is not mandatory for the receipt of a TF.

Imporant notice: applying for a fellowship does not guarantee that you will receive funding. If you require a travel fellowship to attend the symposium, do not register before you have been notified that your application has been approved.
