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.
