IBS is pleased to announce that the Awards Fund Committee has instituted a program to assist IBS members from developing countries in attending conferences sponsored by IBS Regions or Networks.

If you are interested in attending a conference in 2015, either in your own region or outside your region, but don’t have the resources to attend, please consider submitting an application for a travel grant. This a competitive program and grants will not exceed $2,000 USD in 2015.

The guidelines for awarding grants are available here.

All applications for funds should be completed and submitted at least 90 days prior to the conference you wish to attend. Please check the Meetings Calendar for dates and additional information about the many conferences scheduled for 2015.

We look forward to receiving your applications and encourage you to participate in the IBS program!
