Travel Awards

Logos of the ESB and the Taylor Francis Group, joint travel award sponsors.

ESB Travel Awards are given to the most worthy applicants, as selected by the ESB Award Committee. The purpose of the Travel Awards is to financially help young researchers to participate at the ESB Congress. The Award consists of a certificate and an amount of €400, which is expected to be used for travel, accommodation and living expenses during the ESB meeting.

Any ESB member who is undertaking a PhD or has not more than 5 years PostDoc experience and is submitting a paper to the ESB Congress is eligible to apply. The applicant must be the first author of the abstract.

Application for travel awards now occurs during the ESB congress online abstract submission process. For 2019, the applications are submitted through the ESB congress portal. Deadline is the same as for abstract submission: 31 January 2019. For consideration, the candidate must submit an application, briefly outlining and justifying why they are requesting a travel grant, including the applicant’s curriculum vitae (max 2 pages).

To qualify for the award, the conference management team will need to check your eligibility against the ESB membership database, and may share information you provide to the conference with the ESB, in order to do this.

Candidates may only receive a travel award once, which will be awarded at the congress banquet. Funds are limited and a priority list is drawn up based on scientific quality. The applicant must be first author of the abstract.

We will endeavor to provide notification of the awards in sufficient time for you to apply for any required travel visa, but application for the visa remains your own responsibility, and it could be beneficial to start the visa application process immediately and not wait for the result of the travel award.
