Travel Grant for Congress and Conference


PhD students who are enrolled in the doctoral program can apply for a competitive travel grant.


  • You must already have a least 6.0 ECTS.
  • You can apply only after your mid-thesis meeting.
  • You must give a talk or present a poster at the congress or conference.


To apply, please fill up the travel grant request form, at least 3 months before the event. A decision is usually made within 3 weeks after receipt of the request.


After the event, please do not forget to request your ECTS using the External ECTS validation request form!


Reminber that you can be awarded only one mobility grant and one travel grant from our doctoral program during your full PhD. You may look at the external grants page for learning about other opportunities from other programs and funding bodies.


The reimbursement will usually take place after the trip.

Download the reimbursement form and send it together with all original receipts to the doctoral program coordinator at organismal.biology@unine.ch.
