Student Travel Support
ISHPSSB supports graduate student participation in
our biennial meetings as well as off-year workshops. The Travel Support
administers ISHPSSB Travel Awards, which are currently funded by ISHPSSB and,
for US citizens and students at US institutions, by the NSF via a grant to the
8 Societies. Any donations to the ISHPSSB travel fund are gratefully received
by the next generation of scholars of biology!

The society has the financial means to support only
a portion of students’ travel costs. Travel costs include transportation
expenses such as airfare, gas or mileage, but do not include other types of
expenses such as conference registration, lodging and meals. Award amounts will
depend on the total amount of funding available to ISHPSSB, the relative cost
of travel between the students' locations and conference site, and the ability
of applicants to access additional resources. For recent previous meetings,
award amounts ranged from US$50 to US$1,000, and averaged about US$300. This
represented one-half to two-thirds of travel costs that remained for students
once their institutional funds had been applied.
Application form for ISHPSSB 2017 Travel Awards is already available at the ISHPSSB web site: www.ishpssb.org/meetings.
