The International Biogeography Society is awarding travel grants for students and post-docs to attend the 2009 biennial meeting, which will be held January 8-12, 2009 in Merida, Mexico. The U.S. National Science Foundation has provided a large grant to IBS that will pay for several dozen young scientists from U.S.-based institutions to attend the meeting. Applicants awarded these grants will still need to pay meeting registration costs, but most other expenses, such as airfare, hotel costs, and food, will be supported =96 up to a maximum of $1,300 per award recipient. IBS will also provide a limited number of travel grants for students based outside the U.S. These grants will award a maximum of $800 per award participant. All grants will be awarded to graduate students, advanced undergraduates, and post-docs giving oral or poster presentations at the meeting.
Each applicant will need to submit an application along with an electronic letter of recommendation from a non-student member of IBS. Application instructions can be found here.
Applications and supporting materials are due by October 31st, 2008. Grant recipients will be notified by November 15th, 2008.
