The IBRO Travel Grant program aims to foster neuroscience research by providing support to early career PhD students and postdoctoral fellows from diverse geographical and scientific areas who wish to participate in international neuroscience meetings and events taking place in 2024.

The grant is to be used for travel and local expenses while attending the proposed conference or meeting. Priority will be given to applicants from less developed and less well-funded countries in combination with efforts to ensure both gender and regional diversity. Applicants should explain the impact attending the specified meeting or conference will have on their career.
