International travel grants

* PLEASE NOTE THAT THE APPLICATION PROCEDURE HAS CHANGED. APPLICATIONS ARE NOW DIRECTLY TO ISMB *

ISMB provides international travel grants (up to 800 euros each) for young scientists (graduate students or postdocs up to 5 years after Ph.D., with extensions for maternity leave, military service, etc) to allow them to attend major meetings in matrix biology anywhere in the world. While priority will be given to meetings directly supported by ISMB (including Matrix Biology Europe, the American Society for Matrix Biology and the Pan Pacific Connective Tissue Societies Symposium), applications are accepted for any meeting, provided that the scope of the meeting agrees with the aims of the Society. To apply for a travel grant, please send your application to the ISMB secretary, in the form of a single pdf file containing: (1) a letter giving information about the meeting, the amount requested and a detailed justification for support, (2) the abstract of your poster/short talk, (3) your curriculum vitae and list of publications. Please apply several months in advance of the meeting, before one of the following deadlines : January 1, April 1, July 1, October 1. Candidates should be members of the ISMB (see membership page for details). Grants are for international travel only and will be awarded on the basis of scientific excellence and relevance to matrix biology. Successful candidates will be notified no more than one month after each deadline. Following the meeting, awardees will be expected to send to the ISMB a certificate of attendance as well as a short report (to appear on the ISMB web site with some selected for the ISMB newsletter) in the form of a personal perspective on their experience at the meeting.
