Don’t miss out and talk with your advisor right away. Quick reminder you and your advisor must be active financial members of the ISB to participate in the grant program- don’t forget to renew to your membership for 2023. 

The XXIX ISB Congress will be in Fukuaka Japan. This will also be a grand celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the ISB. The Student Congress Travel Grant is back with a deadline of Feb 1, 2023 These grants will vary in size from $600USD up to $1200USD, according to the distance from the Congress city. To be eligible for this grant the student must be first author of the Abstract and presenter of the paper at the Congress. At the time of application for the grant you must not have defended your dissertation or concluded your degree program. More details can be found on the ISB website.   

**Attention Post-docs** The ISB will be supporting a NEW post-doc congress travel grant for 2023. Many current post-docs missed out on the opportunity to build their international network as the 2021 meeting in Stockholm was transitioned to a virtual meeting. These $500USD awards may offset costs for registration to the Congress. To be eligible for the award the Postdoc must be the first author of the Abstract and presenter of the paper at the Congress. The deadline will be Feb 1, 2023. Details on the award will be posted to the ISB website soon.
