The European Elasmobranch Association grants every year a number of Student Travel Bursaries to help cover costs to attend the EEA Annual Scientific Meeting. Admitted are students that are currently enrolled at a University or College for undergraduate, graduate or postgraduate studies.
If you have registered and made payment for the conference and have submitted an abstract for oral presentation (NOT POSTERS) you are invited to apply for the Student Travel Bursary to assist with travel costs. Your payment status on the registration and your presentation slot will be checked. If you are not presenting you will not be considered for the bursary.
Complete applications must be received by the 5th of October 2021. After this deadline, the EEA Scientific Committee will review the abstracts of Student Travel Bursary applicants and will nominate five students to be awarded €250 towards travel costs. One non-student bursary from a developing country may be awarded at the discretion of the board.
You will need to submit 3 documents: the application form which includes your extended abstract, your CV and a letter of recommendation from your supervisor.
Please note, successful bursary candidates will be notified before the conference but bursary will be given at conference.
