DEADLINE 15 January 2019
FEMS provides grants for European and non-European Early Career Scientists to support their attendance at the 8th FEMS Congress of European Microbiologists, July 7 – 11, 2019, Glasgow, Scotland.
Each grant provides a waiver of the registration fee. In exceptional cases a grant may support additional costs, to the discretion of the Grants Committee.
Through a collaboration between ALAM and FEMS, the FEMS Journals also sponsor three additional grants, that support three early career scientists from South America to attend FEMS2019. These grants will cover the registration fee and contribute EUR 500 towards travel. To apply for these grants, early career scientists from South America should follow the application procedure of the Congress Attendance Grants.
FEMS will organize a special networking and social event for all grant recipients. Further details will be posted on this website when available, and will be included in the final programme book.
FEMS will recognize the best posters presented by a FEMS Early Career Scientist with an additional award. Further details will be posted on this website when available. These poster prize awards will be given at the Closing Ceremony of FEMS 2019. Winners must be present during the Closing Ceremony to receive their prize.
