TRAVEL GRANTS

 
ISCEV awards travel grants to assist colleagues who would otherwise be unable to attend the ISCEV International Symposium and/or course. An equal number of travel grants are awarded to applicants from the ISCEV region1 of the 2017 Symposium and to applicants from the two other ISCEV regions. Value of awards in dollars are detailed in the table below. Recipients also receive one year’s free membership to ISCEV and a reduced registration fee offered by the local organizers.

 

 GRANT AMOUNTS
Symposium Only Course Only Symposium & Course
ISCEV 2017 Region1
$500 $400 $600
Additional Regions2
$1000 $800 $1200

 

The grants program does not expect to provide full support but hopefully will provide sufficient assistance that grant-recipients will be able to find local funds for the remainder of their costs. Applicants who are not awarded grants retain the privilege of registering for the symposium and / or the course without a late fee, if the early registration deadline has passed.

 

ELIGIBILITY AND APPLICATION PROCESS

DOWNLOAD APPLICATION FORM

 

Applications are made directly to the Secretary-General and will be considered by the ISCEV Awards Committee, which comprises the Secretary General and the three regional ISCEV Vice-Presidents. There are three categories of application: an individual may only apply once, in one of the three categories:


1.    Symposium only. Applicants must submit an abstract for presentation.
2.    Course only (animal or human).
3.    Symposium and course (animal or human). Applicants must submit an abstract for presentation.

  • For all categories, applicants must submit a statement of circumstances from the applicant describing his/her experience in clinical electrophysiology of vision and the reason for requesting financial assistance.
  • For all categories, if the applicant is a junior member of ISCEV, or would qualify for junior membership2, an additional letter of support from their supervisor is required.
  • There are no absolute criteria for travel grants; the awards committee will consider scientific merit and the benefits to the applicant of participation in the Symposium and/or attendance at the course. Repeat applications from previously-successful applicants, multiple applications from the same laboratory, and applications from investigators with more than 5 years of experience in clinical electrophysiology will not be considered.

1The ISCEV Regions are: The Americas, Europe & Africa and Asia & Oceania
2Junior is defined as “Primarily engaged in supervised basic science or clinical training, e.g. a graduate student, post-doctoral fellow, resident or clinical fellow”. Applications from the same laboratory, and applications from investigators with more than 5 years of experience in clinical electrophysiology will not be considered.

 

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION

ISCEV recognizes the value of the Travel Grants in helping individuals new to electrophysiology attend the ISCEV conference and/or courses. Therefore, we are extending the Travel Grant Deadline until July 21st, 2017 so that all individuals have the opportunity to apply.

The deadline for travel grant applications (and when combined with abstract submission) is July 21, 2017.
