Travel grants for Volvox 2019

The Fifth International Volvox Conference will be July 26-29, 2019 at the University of Tokyo Hongo campus. For past meetings, generous support from organizations such as the American Genetic Association, the Company of Biologists, Wellcome Trust, and the Phycological Society of America has allowed the organizing committee to award travel fellowships to students and postdocs. It’s not yet clear if that will be the case for next year’s meeting.

Stephanie Höhn has helpfully put together a list of outside travel grants available to students and/or postdocs, along with their deadlines and membership requirements:

If you are planning to go, and especially if you’ll be traveling from outside of Japan, it would be a good idea to start putting together your applications now. Even if the committee is able to provide travel fellowships this time, it doesn’t seem likely that they’ll cover the whole cost of travel from the U.S. or Europe. Some of those deadlines are less than two months away!
