Student Travel Awards

The International Biogeography Society periodically awards travel grants to students to help with expenses associated with attending our biennial meetings.  Awards are variable in amount, but often include a registration fee waiver, with some larger additional awards for travel expenses.  Travel Awards are principally for students, and in most cases do not cover full travel expenses.  Matching funds are strongly recommended.

Please note the following:

  • You need to be a current student member of the International Biogeography Society in order to apply for any available awards.  Not a member already or need to update your membership? Sign in/up at our membership page.

  • Awards are given to current students, but may also include post-docs from developing countries

  • Support is limited to attending specific IBS meetings identified

  • Notifications on available student travel awards are promoted on the website, with a direct email sent to current society members

  • Occasionally there are outside sponsors that offer student travel support for IBS meetings and conferences.  We will try to keep these opportunities in the alerts at the bottom of the page.

As International Biogeography Society funds are limited in scope, we welcome your support for the Student Travel Award fund.  Please consider making a small gift to help support student participation in conferences!
