Travel Grants and Registration Fee Waivers
Applications for EMBO Travel Grants and Registration Fee Waivers are no longer possible.
Travel Grants and Registration Fee Waivers for young researchers are available for the EMBO I EMBO Symposia Series, allowing organisers to offer travel grants to a few of their selected participants coming from labs in countries in need of scientific strengthening (within Europe or internationally). Please see below for more information. When submitting your abstract you will be asked to apply for either a Travel Grant or a Registration Fee Waiver or both.
EMBO Travel Grants
Travel grants for young researchers residing in eligible countries (see below list) are available.
A maximum of 500 EUR per travel grant can be awarded (at organisers’ discretion, the amount can be lowered to accommodate more participants).
This grant should be used to cover economy travel costs.
Visa, accommodation and subsistence costs will not be covered by these funds.
Please indicate your interest for an EMBO Travel Grant when submitting your abstract. During the abstract submission phase (step 2 after you have registered for the conference) there will be a small field to complete your reasons for requesting this travel grant.
The recipients of the travel grants will be selected by the scientific organiser during the review process. If you are awarded a travel grant, you will be notified after the completion of the review process by the conference officer. This is usually two months before the conference start date.
Please make sure to keep all travel receipts for reimbursement.
Registration Fee Waivers
Registration Fee Waivers for young researcher are available.
