Student fellowships

To stimulate the participation of young scientists, we are pleased to announce the availability of 10 student fellowships.

What is a student fellowship?

A fellowship covers the registration fee for full participation to the Benelux Bioinformatics Conference, including lectures, poster sessions, lunch and coffee breaks. Note that a fellowship does NOT cover the conference dinner on Monday evening, but fellowship recipients are allowed to join the dinner at the normal rate (€ 50). Fellowships also do not cover accommodation, travel, or other costs.

Who can get a fellowship?

The fellowships will be preferentially awarded to students with:

  • a particular interest in bioinformatics;
  • active involvement in bioinformatics work (internship, bachelor or master thesis, …);
  • NO formal scientific employment (in the form of a salary or grant).

Active participation with a scientific poster is strongly encouraged. Check the late poster abstract submission information on the conference website.

How can I apply for a fellowship?

The deadline for student fellowship applications has now passed, and applying is no longer possible. The student fellowship recipients have been contacted.

The organising committee is responsible for the selection. No further discussion will be held with regards to the result.

Note that we will follow a strict attendance policy. Fellowship recipients who are unable to attend, are expected to inform us 7 days in advance. Without notification, fellowship recipients who do not show up at the conference notice will be charged the registration fee.
