To support Galway Neuroscience Centre members’ attendance at the FENS2020 Forum of Neuroscience in Glasgow (11-15th July 2020), we are pleased to announce that we will be providing FENS2020 travel awards for GNC PhD students and post-doctoral researchers.
These will be awarded to PhD students and post-doctoral applicants who are both GNC and Neuroscience Ireland members, who have submitted an abstract for FENS2020, and who have also applied for a Neuroscience Ireland FENS2020 travel bursary. Applicants that do not receive a travel bursary from Neuroscience Ireland will be considered for a Galway Neuroscience Centre travel award.
1. You must be a GNC PhD student or post-doctoral researcher.
2. You must be a member of Neuroscience Ireland (apply here).
3. You must have submitted an abstract for FENS2020 (submit here).
4. You must have applied for the Neuroscience Ireland Travel FENS2020 bursary (apply here).
Application Process: After fulfilling the above eligibility criteria, simply send a copy of your Neuroscience Ireland travel bursary application form to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission is the 18th February 2020 – the same as the FENS2020 abstract submission deadline and the Neuroscience Ireland travel bursary deadline.
It was a great opportunity for us to see the student projects and other exhibitions through the day, and of course, it was great to see so much interest from young people in neuroscience!
We are indebted to our volunteers John Kelly, Alvaro Llorente-Berzal, Patricia Calcagno and Cerena Kyanna Miravalles! Your enthusiasm made all the difference to making the Galway Neuroscience stand a success!
