ESEB travel stipend
These stipends are for students and young scientists to attend the Evolution 2014 congress of the SSE in
Raleigh, North Carolina in June 2014. The stipend will contribute to covering travel, living expenses and congress registration fees. The stipend will be paid out as a reimbursement
after the congress, based on specification of the expenses.
- Applicants must be ESEB members (for becoming a member of ESEB, see left panel 'Membership: Join/Renew).
- Applications can be submitted by scientists at various stages of their professional career (e.g., Masters and PhD students, postdocs, and lecturers).
- Scientists working in a country with high GDP are not eligible (for the list of excluded countries see below).
- People who received an ESEB travel award in the last five years are not eligible.
- Applicants must submit to present either an oral communication or a poster to be eligible for the award. This will be verified before the reimbursement,
but no proof that a poster or talk is accepted is necessary at the application stage.
