The International Biometric Society Travel Award Committee has instituted a program to assist only IBS members from Developing Countries in attending conferences sponsored by IBS Regions or Networks.

If you are interested in attending a conference in 2017, 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 is a competitive program and grants will not exceed $2,000 USD in 2017.

Three important guidelines include making note of, first ensure you qualify, only active members from a Developing Country are eligible.  Second, the application deadline is 30 June  2017. Lastly, previous award recipients of the award may apply only if the award was not made in the four previous years. However, preference will be given to those who have not received a travel award in the past.

All applications for funds should be completed and submitted via the IBS Regional Meetings Travel Grant Application at least 90 days prior to the conference you wish to attend.  Please check the meetings calendar on the IBS website for dates and additional information about many of the conferences scheduled for 2017.

Determinations will be sent out 4-6 weeks after the 30 June deadline. We look forward to receiving your applications and encourage you to participate in this IBS program.
