Congress bursaries for early-career researchers

Early-career researchers presenting their work at the 2020 FEBS Congress may be eligible to apply for a FEBS, SBD or HDBMB bursary to support their participation. Read on!

FEBS bursaries

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.

SBD and HDBMB bursaries

SBD bursaries for young Slovenian scientists and students (under the age of 35) who are the members of the Slovenian Biochemical Society (SBD) will cover the registration fee (€250). SBD will offer up to 50 bursaries.

Similarly, HDBMB will offer up to 10 bursaries to young Croatian scientists and students (under the age of 35) who are the members of the Croatian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (HDBMB), which will cover the registration fee (€250).
