Overview:

Nature Publishing Group (NPG) supports the broadest participation of qualified scientists in scientific conferences. To further this goal NPG established the Nature Travel Grants, which provide funding for conferees from countries with developing economies to attend Gordon Research Conferences (GRCs). The aim of the Nature Travel Grants is to help mitigate one of the factors—lack of funds—which may prevent these conferees from attending GRCs.

Awards of up to $1,500.00 are made to support eligible participants from countries with developing economies. Funding is limited and is available on a first-come first-served basis. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • Chairs may nominate an accepted GRC conferee for a Nature Travel Grant if the conferee is a citizen of and working in a country with a GNI per capita under $12,4755 (as calculated by the World Bank using Atlas methodology). Chairs receive nomination forms through the Nature Travel Grants Program and should submit completed forms by return email.
  • Nominees must also be attending a GRC for the first time to be eligible.
