Applications open for the IBRO/APRC Travel Grants 2014 (July-December)

The IBRO APRC Travel Grants aim to support young researchers and graduate students working in Asian/Pacific countries to attend and make presentations at international APRC member society meetings, held in English, within the region.

Graduate students and researchers who have obtained a Ph.D. within the last five years are qualified to apply. For countries in which it is extremely difficult to obtain support for trips to foreign meetings, excellent applications by those under 40 will also be considered. Applications from countries of Low, Lower-middle and Upper-middle-income (according to The World Bank) will be favored.

This application round covers the 37th Annual Meeting of the Japan Neuroscience Society (JNS) held September 11-13, 2014 in Yokohama (http://www.neuroscience2014.jp/en/index.html) as well as the 32nd Annual Meeting of the Indian Academy of Neurosciences held November 1-3, 2014 in Bengaluru. JNS will exempt the awardees from registration fees.

Applicants cannot apply for more than one category of funding within the IBRO Travel Grants program.

Grant amount: 1,000 –  1,500 US dollars*

Deadline: February 3, 2014 (11:59 p.m. CET – Europe/Paris time)
