Financial support of PhD students
The Organisers of the 28th ICYGMB / Yeast2017 are seeking funds to waive the registration fee for PhD students who are constrained financially from attending the Conference. Priority will be given to those who will be presenting authors.
If you wish to apply for a support, please submit an abstract through the Online Abstract submission (please, check the box Fellowship application there) and register online (please, fill in the abstract number and check the box Fellowship application in the form). Then send a copy of the abstract along with your CV containing a list of publications, an accompanying letter explaining your needs, and a recommendation letter from your supervisor to the Conference Secretariat via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) before April 14, 2017. Successful candidates will be notified by June 23, 2017.
All those who will not be selected for a support but still wishing to attend the Conference, will be allowed to pay the lower (early) registration fee.We regret to announce that our application for the FEMS Meeting Grant was not successful. In this respect, we recommend interested PhD students and young postdocs under 36 to apply individually for FEMS Meeting Attendance Grants directly at the FEMS office. Please, pay attention to your eligibility for this grant (you have to be a member of a FEMS Society etc.) and be aware that the deadline for application is April 1, 2017.
