BOU ECR travel grants to attend IOC2018
The BOU will be offering travel grants for BOU Early Career Researcher (ECR) members for the International Ornithological Congress (IOC) in Vancouver, Canada, 19-26 August 2018.
This is the first time we have been able to support ECRs to attend an International Ornithological Congress, and it will provide an opportunity for BOU ECR members outside Europe to take advantage of this support, as support offered around our traditional events tends to be taken up solely by European researchers.
Central and North America – grants of up to £300/$375*
Rest of world – grants of up to £800/$1000*
* USD rate will be based on currency conversion from GBP at the time of the award.
Our usual condition that those wishing to take advantage of BOU support must be an ECR member in the year preceding the event they wish to attend, applies. Join as a BOU ECR member here. Other conditions will also apply.
Full details and application forms will be posted here on 1 November 2017.
