Travel grants

By our current policy we support all FENS Schools, FENS-IBRO Cajal Courses, and The Brain Conferences with 50% of the registration fee. However, given the high costs of the Cajal Courses, this applies only to the first 2 successful applications. Later applications will be supported by 30% until a limit of 5.000 € is reached. Up from there, we cannot provide any more support for FENS Schools and Courses.

Once you haven been successful with your application to one of these events you may ask for support by sending an email to secretary@austrian-neuroscience.at.

ANA also regularly sponsors travel grants for FENS and ANA meetings. The 5.000 € limit does not apply for travel grants to these meetings. Announcements will be published in the news section of the ANA website in due time.
