Travel Fellowships

We are pleased to inform you that we are offering travel fellowships to help students to attend to SCS 2019. These travel fellowships are possible due to the kind support of our sponsors.
All participants who have already submitted an abstract to the SCS are elegible to apply to our travel fellowships. The deadline for submitting the travel fellowship application is on 13th of MAY at 11.59 pm in the time zone of your country. Recipients of a SCS travel fellowship will be notified on before 30th of May, 2019.


  • Travel fellowship funding may only cover part of your expenses for the SCS 2019. In that case, your remaining expenses may need to be funded by other sources.
  • Applying for a travel fellowship does not guarantee that you will receive the funding. All applications will be peer-reviewed.
  • If you require a travel fellowship to attend the symposium, please do not register before you have been notified that your application has been approved.
  • The travel fellowship will be a fix amount of money and the reimbursement will be done in the days after of the event.
  • To ensure correct processing of the award and receive the money, travel fellowship recipients are required to provide organizers copies of relevant receipts (such as conference registration, travel expenses, accommodation, etc) during or shortly after the symposium.
  • You will need to be a registered in the SCS 2019 as member of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) to be reimbursed.
