FEBS 2020 Congress bursaries
Early-career researchers presenting their work at the 45th FEBS Congress in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 4–9 July, may be eligible to apply for a FEBS bursary to support participation.
FEBS bursaries aim to help early-career researchers from outside the host countries participate in a FEBS Congress when submitting an abstract to the event as first author.
For the 45th FEBS Congress, FEBS bursaries will cover the 'Young scientist' early bird registration fee of €250, and make a €400 contribution towards travel/accommodation.
Full details on eligibility and how to apply are on the FEBS bursaries page of the Congress website. Note that FEBS bursaries are for early-career FEBS members studying for a PhD in a FEBS country, working as a postdoctoral scientist in a FEBS country, or working elsewhere after obtaining their PhD in a FEBS country. A 'FEBS member' is a member of one of the national biochemical and molecular biology societies that make up FEBS (its Constituent Societies); a 'FEBS country' is a country where there is a FEBS Constituent Society. You can find links to all the Constituent Societies of FEBS via the Our Members section of the FEBS website.
The FEBS bursaries applications deadline is March 5, 2020.
Separate bursary schemes from the Slovenian Biochemical Society and the Croatian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology are available for young scientists and students coming from the host countries of the 45th FEBS Congress.
