Student conference grants

The section gives a limited number of grants to students, mostly to support attendance at international conferences.

In order for students to apply for funding to attend the international IUSSI meeting, students have to have been a member for at least one year prior to the application deadline. However, students beginning their studies in October 2019 and registering as a member in October will pay their 2020 fees, and still be counted as being a member since 2019.

Two perks:

Having a subscription to IUSSI is a great way to support the world of social insect research. Membership is cheap (£7.50 for students, £15 for full members). One additional perk of being a member is that it provides large discounts when registering for IUSSI conferences. Registrations can be done here: http://www.iussi.org/NWEurope/subs.htm
