Travel grants

Each year, the French Society of Developmental Biology (SFBD) awards travel grants to PhD students (minimum 2nd year of PhD) or young post-doctoral students (less than 2 years of postdoc) members of the SFBD and willing to present their work at international conferences with a poster or an oral presentation.

We also give a bonus for eco-responsible trips avoiding flight travel.

Please note that the same person cannot be awarded the travel grant two years in a row (but people can apply two years in a row if they were not awarded the grant)

STATUS : ouvert

 

DEADLINE : 31/03/2024

 

Registration fees up to:

400€ for European meetings with flight transportation ✈️,

500€ for European meetings with train transportation🚆,

500€ for non-European meetings

How to apply?

The application (in French or English) must include the following information in a single pdf file:

  1. A CV of two pages maximum mentioning academic and professional background, publications and previous participation to other meetings
  2. A short letter of no more than one page explaining the choice of the meeting and the relationship with Developmental Biology
  3. Information on the meeting and the abstract submitted to the congress (one page maximum, in English)

Selection procedure

The selection is made by the SFBD Board based on the submitted pdf file.

  • Travel grants are awarded subject to SFBD membership as an individual or as a member of  a team belonging to the SFBD.
  • The SFBD logo must be displayed in the poster or slideshow.
  • At the end of the meeting, a text (1/2 page max.) describing the benefits of participating in the congress must be sent to the SFBD (bourses-voyages@sfbd.fr). It will be published on the website as well as in the annual SFBD letter.
