Bursaries for international congresses

The GFPP awards 2 scholarships per year (500€ each) to young researchers (PhD or Post-docs) to enable them to present their work in international congresses (European Peptide Society, American Peptide Society). The bursary is intended to cover part of the transport and accommodation costs. The fees must be incurred by the person making the request and will be reimbursed upon return upon presentation of invoices.

The attendance of the supervisor is not mandatory but desirable. In addition, we will prioritize PhD students in 2nd and 3rd year over PhD students in 1st year.

In 2020, two bursaries will be awarded to young researchers presenting their work at the 36th European Peptide Symposium (Sitges, Spain, August 30th-September 4th 2020).

Submit your application by March 8th 2020 to this email.

The following documents are needed:

– a CV

– a cover letter

– a recommendation letter from the scientific supervisor

attestation of grant submission to EPS

Once the notification of the EPS scientific committee (acceptance or not) will have been sent (tentative date announced on the EPS website: 15 April 2020), please forward it to this email.

The final decision will be sent by email to the applicants within 10 days after the reception of the notification of the EPS committee.
