The International Biogeography Society is awarding travel grants to students to help with travel expenses associated with attending the 2015 IBS biennial meeting, to be held 8-12 January 2015 in Bayreuth, Germany.

Grants will be awarded to individuals giving oral or poster presentations at the meeting; all applicants must be current student members of the International Biogeography Society. Applications by post-docs from developing countries (only) who are also IBS members, will also be considered.

Applications and supporting materials are due by September 30th, 2014.  Awards include a registration fee waiver and cover attendance at one workshop (if space is available), with some larger additional awards of up to 500 USD for travel expenses.
