Pre-conference Workshops for Early Career Scholars

The International Society for the Study of Behavioural Development is planning six Pre-Conference Workshops for early career scholars – participants, who received a graduate research degree (e.g., PhD) within the past seven years or who are in a graduate program leading to such a degree - to be held in Rhodes on June 19, 2022, the day before the main ISSBD 2020 sessions start. ISSBD anticipates providing travel support for a number of qualified early career scholars to attend one of these pre-conference workshops and the ISSBD 2022 conference. Applications from early career scholars from any country are welcome. Please note that travel grants will only be awarded to early career scholars who apply for and attend one of the pre-conference workshops AND who have at least one abstract accepted for the 2022 Biennial Meeting. Please also note that this is a new competition (separate from the one held for the 2020 meeting) and that all early career scholars need to apply to be eligible for travel grants and pre-conference workshops for the 2022 meeting.

Procedure for Application

Interested Early Career Scholars should apply to register for the pre-conference and request travel funding support via this application form. In addition to the completed application form, the following are required: (1) One of your abstracts submitted for the 2022 ISSBD Biennial Meeting; (2) A 2-page curriculum vitae; and (3) A reference letter from a senior scientist familiar with your research work (preferably an ISSBD member; no more than 2 pages). Please note that your reference letter and journal publications may be verified. If possible, please submit the application form and the three required items as a single PDF. If this is not possible, please try to submit the application and the three required items as a single MS Word document. Ensure that the name of the document(s) you submit includes your surname as the first word of its filename. Submit your document(s), using the subject header “Application” to Tasos Ntalachanis at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please note that applications for a travel grant will only be considered from individuals whose academic contribution to the ISSBD 2022 conference in Rhodes (poster, poster workshop or symposium) has already been accepted for presentation. Therefore, decisions about funding will be made after decisions about acceptances to the Biennial Meeting have been announced. Incomplete and late applications will not be accepted. Please also note that this application is due BEFORE the abstracts are due for the Biennial Meeting.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION

November 30th, 2021

Decision time-frame: funding decisions will be made in as timely a way as possible, but after decisions about the Biennial Meeting have been made. All funding decisions will be communicated via e-mail around January 31st, 2022.
