ESEB Conference Travel Award

These stipends are for students and young scientists who are professionally based in countries with a low GDP to attend the next European Meeting of PhD Students in Evolutionary Biology (EMPSEB) from June 3rd – 6th, 2024 in Austria, or the joint Evolution conference of ASN/ESEB/SSB/SSE in Montreal, Canada, on July 26th-30th, 2024. The stipend will contribute to covering travel, living expenses, and early bird congress registration fees. The funds will be paid out as a reimbursement after the congress, based on specification of the expenses. Note that the registration fee for the joint Evolution conference will be waived by the organisers and thus does not need to be included in the budget.

Please note that this Conference Travel Award is distinct from the Congress Attendance Aid Grant, which is designed to promote the attendance of under-represented groups and to help with the additional costs of meeting attendance due to responsibilities for caring for dependents when attending the meetings and NOT for the costs of the applicant to attend the meeting.

DEADLINE: January 31th, 2024


  • Applicants must be ESEB members before the deadline (for becoming an ESEB member, please visit https://eseb.org/society/eseb-membership/).
  • Applications can be submitted by scientists at various stages of their professional career (e.g., Masters and PhD students, postdocs, and lecturers).
  • Scientists working in a country with high GDP are not eligible (for the list of excluded countries see below).
  • People who received an ESEB travel stipend in the last five years are not eligible.
  • Applicants must apply to present either an oral communication or a poster to be eligible for the stipend. Presentation of a talk or a poster will be verified before the reimbursement, but no proof that a poster or talk is accepted is necessary at the application stage. However, please note that being chosen for a travel award does not guarantee acceptance of a poster or talk at the conference.
Please note that these stipends are given in conjunction with analogous stipends offered by the Society for the Study of Evolution (separate call) to support participation at the joint Evolution conference in 2024. There is no need to apply to both, the ESEB and the SSE awards.
