TRAVEL STIPENDS – Call for Applications

12th Annual Meeting of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies

Dear Colleagues,

The 12th FENS Forum 2020 will be taking place in Glasgow on 11 - 15 July 2020. With the generous support of a grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism of the National Institutes of Health USA, the International Behavioural and Neural Genetics Society (IBANGS) has established a travel award of $500 to assist trainees hoping to attend FENS in order to encourage and promote the mobility of young scientists. This award offers an opportunity for trainees to participate in an outstanding scientific meeting that covers basic, translational and clinical neuroscience research while interacting with researchers and scientists from around the world.



Travel Stipend Details:

In order to be eligible, applicants must be or become an IBANGS member and must be currently enrolled in a Ph.D. or M.D. training program, or in a post-doctoral position.  Applications should include 1) a CV, 2) an abstract (250 or fewer words) of the work to be presented, 3) a letter that describes applicant eligibility (e.g., in what year of what training program, or postdoctoral status), 4) how meeting attendance will further the applicant’s career goals, 5) why the work to be presented is deserving of recognition, and 6) two letters of recommendation, one from the PI of the laboratory in which the applicant is conducting research. The IBANGS Awards Committee will choose the award winner.

Applications are due by January 31, 2020 and should be emailed to Anna Delprato
