GAJU Travel Awards

Dear all,

I am pleased that the SARS-CoV-2 pandemy has been mitigated and many of you have been preparing your research stays abroad. We open the 2nd call for applications for awards funded by team GAJU grants. The competitive awards can support your active participation in international conferences, workshops, or research stays abroad. The awards can cover travel expenses, accommodation, daily allowance, and conference fees. We will consider also online conferences, workshops, and courses this year.

How to apply?

Send your complete application in pdf format by email to Petr Nguyen ( 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 deadline and support will be paid as a premium scholarship to the top applicants.

When to apply?

The deadline for applications is June 30, 2021.

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, detailed 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. Securing co-funding from other resources is encouraged and appreciated.
