training and travel grants
As part of our goal to foster extraordinary connections among young scientists, each year we award around £50,000 in training and travel grants. As a student or early career scientist you can get support to:
- take part in scientific conferences
- attend workshops
- carry out field research
- fund travel and subsistence for laboratory visits.
Students and early careers scientists can apply for up to £500 funding with the Company of Biologists Travel Grant to attend conferences, carry out research trips or make lab visits, but not limited to these purposes. A total of £35,000 is awarded in grants each year.
Also, students and early careers scientists can apply for funding of up to £400 to attend the SEB Annual Meeting, depending on how far away you live. Each year, we distribute £12,000 in grants to encourage our young scientists to participate at our flagship conference.
