IBRO International Travel Grants

IBRO International Travel Grants aim to foster neuroscience research, especially in less well-funded countries, by providing support to high-quality neuroscientists from diverse geographic and scientific areas (US/Canada Region excluded), who wish to participate in international neuroscience meetings. Calls for applications are made twice per year (February and August).

Priority is given to those applicants who have not obtained an IBRO International Travel Grant or an IBRO/SfN Travel grant within the past three years.

Applicants may apply either for an IBRO International Travel Grant or an IBRO/SfN Travel Grant, but not to both during the Spring Call (February - March).

Multiple applications from a single laboratory are discouraged.

Amount: Up to 1,800 euros

At least one letter of reference is required in order to be considered for this grant. Two are preferred. Online applications open approximately one month prior to the deadline, closing at Midnight CET of the deadline date.

IBRO/SfN Travel Grants

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.  Calls for applications are made once per year (February).

To qualify for this travel award, you must 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 of May 4 of the current year as to whether they have been elected 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 fulfilment of the requirements as stated above.

Priority is given to those applicants who have not obtained an IBRO International Travel Grant or an IBRO/SfN Travel grant within the past three years.

Applicants may apply either for an IBRO International Travel Grant or an IBRO/SfN Travel Grant, but not to both during the Spring Call (February-March).
