IBRO/SfN Travel Grants Program: The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) offers travel fellowships to their annual meeting for neuroscientists under the age of 35 who are currently working and living in a resource-restricted country – those defined by the World Bank as low, lower-middle, or upper-middle income. (Click here for the World Bank's country classifications.) Registration fees are waived for successful candidates attending the meeting.
Amount: up to USD 2000
To qualify for this travel award, you must both be a citizen of and reside in a country that the World Bank has classified low, lower-middle or upper-middle income. Candidates from the US and Canada are excluded. The applicant should be the first author of an abstract to be presented at the SfN annual meeting. A copy of the abstract submitted to SfN for a poster or a platform presentation is required.
Awardees will be notified prior to the SfN abstract deadline (Thursday, May 5, 2016) as to whether they have been selected for the SfN travel grant. However, this award is contingent upon the awardee's abstract being accepted by SfN, proof of attendance at the meeting, and fulfillment of the requirements as stated above.
At least one letter of reference is required. Failure to provide this will result in disqualification.
Application Deadline: March 5, 2016 (11:59 p.m. CET - Europe/Paris time)
