Student Travel Support

ISHPSSB supports graduate student participation in our biennial meetings as well as off-year workshops. The Travel Support Committee ( 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!

2015 ISHPSSB Meeting, Montréal

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:
