CALL FOR IFPCS TRAVEL AWARDS IS NOW OPEN
for attending the IPCC2023 conference in Bilbao (Spain), May 30 – June 2.
Junior members of the JSPCR, ASPCR, ESPCR or PASPCR can apply for a travel stipend provided by IFPCS to attend the next IPCC conference. The stipend and the amount of IFPCS travel awards for participating in the IPCC2023 conference to be held in Bilbao (Spain) have been established as follows:
- 15 IFPCS travel awards for European members (value: 600 USD)
- 25 IFPCS travel awards for non-European members (value: 1,000 USD)
THE FUNDS WILL BE DISTRIBUTED AS FOLLOWS:
A fixed amount, 282 USD, will be used to cover the registration fee and the Gala dinner of the selected IFPCS travel awardees and will be paid directly to IPCC2023 organizers. The remaining funds (318 USD for Europeans and 718 USD for non-Europeans) must be used to cover, totally or in part, accommodation and/or travelling expenses to Bilbao. These remaining funds will be transferred to a bank account indicated by the awarded person upon presenting to IPCC2023 organizers PDF copies of invoices paid accounting for the travelling and/or accommodation expenses associated with the participation of the selected person in this conference in Bilbao. In case the sum of the invoices provided is lower than the remaining funds then only the justified expenses will be reimbursed.
In case a selected applicant had already paid registration and gala dinner these costs will be reimbursed by IFPCS.
You are eligible for a IFPCS Travel Award if you are an effective member (active member in 2023) at any of the four regional pigment cell societies (ASPCR, ESPCR, JSPCR, PASPCR) and if you are a Student, Postdoc, Resident or Young faculty member (appointed for less than 3 years at the time of this request), and you are submitting an abstract for presentation in person at the IPCC2023 conference.
