SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. DETERMINATIONS WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT THE END OF APRIL.

The IBS travel awards program, made available through the financial support of the International Biometric Society, IBS Regions, and individuals, provides assistance to only IBS members from a Developing Country (DC) to attend an IBC.  IBC2018 will be held in Barcelona, Spain from 8 – 13 July 2018.

In recent years, the awards program has become quite competitive. Recipients of the award will receive funds to cover only a portion of conference registration fees, accommodations, airfare and/or meals.  Grants will not exceed $3,000.00 USD per person.

If you reside in a Developing Country (DC) and are a member of IBS, you may apply for travel funds to attend the International Biometric Conference. You must not have received IBS funding in 2014 or 2016.

Only online applications are accepted and must be submitted no later than the deadline 16 January 2018. Determinations will be announced in early April 2018.
