ESEB now has travel awards available for students and young scientists to attend an SSE meeting in the US or an ESEB meeting in Europe.
The award will cover:
1. Support toward travel and living expenses.
2. SSE/ESEB Registration fees (the award will not cover late registration fees).
Eligibility: Applications can be submitted by young scientists at various stages of their professional career that do not yet have a permanent position. Applicants should be ESEB members (for becoming a member of ESEB, see the ESEB website at http://www.eseb.org). Proposals can be submitted several times, but if successful, winners are not eligible for a second award for a period of 5 years. They must present either an oral communication or a poster to be eligible for the award.
The application should be no more than 2 pages long and include: name of the applicant; meeting name and dates; budget, including sources of additional support; an explanation of how attendance to the meeting will further their professional goals (preferably as a single pdf-file). A CV and a support letter from the applicant advisor/mentor are also required. Support letters should be sent to the same email address (C.J.M.Egas@uva.nl) by the applicant mentor. The deadline for applications is 6 April 2010.
