EFIS-EJI Travel Grants for ECI 2018





In keeping with one of its principal objectives - to stimulate the active involvement of young researchers at high-caliber international immunology-themed events - EFIS will be awarding up to 250 Travel Grants at the value of EURO 600 each to young post-docs and PhD-students under 35 years of age requesting financial support to attend the 5th European Congress of Immunology - ECI 2018 - to be held September 2 - 5, 2018 in Amsterdam.

To be eligible for a grant, the applicant must be:

   - under 35 years of age,
   - the first author of an abstract submitted to ECI 2018,
   - a member of an EFIS member society.

To apply, please first submit an abstract via the online abstract submission system on the ECI 2018 website and then return here to submit your abstract submission receipt, your CV and proof of membership with an EFIS member society (accepted formats: .doc and .pdf).

Successful applicants will be notified of their award by June 15, 2018.
