Dear all,

I am pleased to finally announce the call for applications for travel awards funded by team GAJU grants. This year, we decided to pool all available funds and create competitive travel awards supporting your active participation in international conferences or research stays abroad. No support will be provided for passive conference attendance. The awards can cover travel expenses, accommodation, and conference fees.

How to apply?

Send your complete application (download form here) by email to Petr Nguyen (petr.nguyen@prf.jcu.cz). Applications will be evaluated by the committee consisting of Vaclav Hypsa, Tomas Dolezal, and Petr Nguyen. The decision about support will be made within 14 days after deadlines and support will be paid as a premium scholarship to the top applicants.

When to apply?

There will be two application deadlines per year. The spring deadline is March 25, 2019. The autumn deadline will be specified later but note that this second call is meant to cover only travels taking place at the beginning of next year, i.e. 2020, and allocated funds will be thus much lower.

Who is eligible?

Master and Ph.D. students in the standard period of study listed under the team GAJU grants managed by Vaclav Hypsa and Petr Nguyen or affiliated to the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics or the Department of Parasitology.

The application should include purpose of your travel, budget, and your motivation. Please, remember that all your peers are obliged to present their results at a conference and complete a study stay abroad. That obligation alone thus is not sufficient reason to get supported. Co-funding from other resources is welcome.
