ISCB 2013 Student Travel Fellowship Campaign
When you need to connect with colleagues in computational biology, where do you go? If you're like most in our Society, you attend an ISCB conference.
Why? Because you know you will receive the latest news on scientific methods and discoveries from leaders in our field. And you also know that you'll meet new colleagues from around the world that will spark ideas for future research and collaboration.
Your membership has helped make ISCB the leading society for bioinformatics and computational biology. We are so grateful to you for supporting our scientific community. Thanks to you, our Society works to advance our field in over 70 countries, whether through conferences, publications, policy, education or training.
ISCB is your scientific society. We exist to serve you and advance computational biology and bioinformatics. As you know, the future of our science depends on current students, the next generation of academic and industry scientists.
Each year, ISCB travel fellowships make it possible for approximately 75-100 students and postdocs to attend our conferences. Now is a crucial time. Government grants for travel fellowships are decreasing. Our student members are counting on your support. How were you helped when you were a student? Are you in a position to help others?
Your gift is extremely important to ISCB because it will provide resources that will make an immediate impact, resources that will help students actively participate in and benefit from a committed community of scientists.
Your gift of $5, $25, $50, $100 or $500 can make all the difference…to our postdocs, our graduate students, and undergraduates. And if you'd like, you can name a travel fellowship with a $2,000 contribution. Your gift at this amount will fully support one young investigator to experience an ISCB conference.
As bioinformatics and computational biology progress, your Society is committed to helping students grow and thrive in our field. Please help to make this possible with your contribution. To make a donation, or learn more about giving opportunities, visit www.iscb.org/iscb-support-iscb.
Thank you so much for supporting our future leaders.
