Travel grants

Each year, the French Society of Developmental Biology awards around 10 travel grants to PhD students (in their 2nd year at least) or to young post-doctoral researchers members of the SFBD and willing to present their work (with a poster or an oral presentation) during an international conference.

The sanitary crisis has made the period not very propitious to travel. Congresses have been successively cancelled or postponed, as well as our travel grant calls. Nevertheless, in this particular period, some meetings are still held by videoconference with registration fees and another ones started to be held in-person. Therefore, we opened a new travel grant call for participation in online and in-person meetings. We are going to give a bonus for eco responsible travel.

STATUS : closed

 

DEADLINE : 27/09/2021

 

Registration fees up to:

200€ for online meetings, 400€ for European meetings ✈️ (500€ if train🚆), 500€ for other destinations

How to apply?

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

  1. Your CV mentioning your academic career, publications and previous participation to other conferences (2 pages max),
  2. A short letter explaining the choice of the congress in relationship with the developmental biology field,
  3. A letter from the thesis director / team leader justifying the need for funding,
  4. The congress information and a copy of the abstract submitted to the congress (one page maximum, in English).

Selection procedure

The selection is made by the SFBD Board based on the content of the application.

  • Candidates must be affiliated to the SFBD as an individual or as a member of an affiliated team.
  • The logo of the SFBD must appear in the poster or powerpoint
  • After the congress, a text (1/2 page) describing the benefits of attending the congress should be sent to us (bourses-voyages@sfbd.fr). This text will be published on the website as well as in the next letter of the SFBD.
