Connecting European Neuroscience

Grants for the FENS Virtual Forum 2020

FENS, IBRO/PERC and a number of FENS members societies and partners are offering grants and stipends for students and early career investigators to support their attendance of the FENS Virtual Forum 2020.

FENS - IBRO/PERC Grants

FENS and IBRO/PERC are jointly offering grants for students and young investigators to attend the FENS Virtual Forum 2020.

Instead of receiving a grant for travel costs, selected recipients will be awarded with waived registration for the Virtual Forum. Your abstract submission fee will not be reimbursed, but the early registration fee you have already paid will be refunded.

One exception applies: participants from a country where there is a member society of FENS will only be reimbursed the FENS member registration fee, regardless of whether they are a member or not.
