The IBRO Travel Grant program aims to foster neuroscience research by providing support to early-career Ph.D. students and post-doctoral fellows from diverse geographical and scientific areas who wish to participate in international neuroscience meetings and events taking place between July and December 2023.

The grant is to be used for travel and local expenses while attending the proposed conference or meeting. Priority will be given given to applicants from less developed and less well-funded countries in combination with efforts to ensure both gender and regional diversity. Applicants should explain the impact attending the specified meeting or conference will have on their career.

Those applying to attend Neuroscience 2023 and the SONA Conference 2023 should apply through this call for applications.

  • Eligible events must take place between July and December 2023

  • A minimum of one reference is required. Two references are ideal

You are not eligible to apply if:

    • You are currently residing in Europe, the US or Canada
