2019 ISMB/ECCB Student Travel Fellowship Campaign

YOU can make a difference in the future of computational biology and bioinformatics by supporting tomorrow’s researchers.

Student travel fellowships help propel young investigators toward important future discoveries. Join ISCB in giving students access to the principal role models within the field and help us influence the paths of scientific careers.

As federal funding opportunities continue to decline, ISCB reaches out to YOU to help this important initiative. Each year ISCB receives over 300 travel fellowship requests. With currently available funds, we can only support approximately 70% of these requests by providing partial funding to each recipient. Making a donation to the travel fellowship fund will enable us to support even more students with higher travel awards

We continue to do all we can but there is still more to do—your contributions at any level will allow us to reach more students. By donating to ISCB student travel fellowships, you are investing in the future of our science.

Your generous sponsorship of the ISMB/ECCB 2019 Travel Fellowship programs enables us to:

  • Provide financial support for bright young scientists to attend and present their research at conferences
  • Advance our education and training programs that deliver important computational biology resources
  • Build a global community dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of living systems through computation

ISCB provides travel support at the following levels. Your donation of any amount helps us get one step closer to funding the maximum number of students and post docs.

Africa1500 USD
Asia (excluding Middle East)1000 USD
Canada1500 USD
Europe750 USD
Mexico / Central America / South America1500 USD
Middle East1000 USD

Sponsors and Donors to the ISMB/ECCB travel fellowship program will be recognized at the meeting and students and postdocs whom your funding supported will be asked to recognize the funder as well.

Support student travel and participation at the annual conference. Donations of CHF 750 or more will receive recognition on the conference website, signage, and on the conference app.
