ISCB Dependent Care Award

ISCB recognizes that many of our members have personal care responsibilities that can present a challenge to attending scientific conferences, and hence interfere with career advancement. We also recognize that you know best how to care for your own dependents and what their needs are. Accordingly, ISCB will make available up to $600 to at least 10 eligible candidates (and as many eligible candidates as allowed by available funding) to be used towards expenses that will facilitate the member’s attendance at ISMB/ECCB 2023.
