GARNet and the Gatsby Charitable Foundation are delighted to be able to offer four £500 travel bursaries for attendance of the International Conference on Arabidopsis Research which will take place in South Korea in June 2016.

To be eligible, the student must still be studying on a UK-based PhD Program at the time of the conference and must also submit a poster abstract to present at the meeting. At the time of application, students must also supply a letter from their supervisor confirming that they have financial support to attend the conference.

Following receipt of a GARNet/Gatsby bursary, the successful student will be required to provide a 500 word summary about their experiences at ICAR2016 for publication in the July 2016 edition of GARNish newsletter or on the GARNet blog.

We are not able to fund travel costs directly. Successful candidates will be provided with the bursary once evidence of registration to the meeting, poster abstract submission and flight bookings are provided.

Please pass on this information to anyone who might be interested in this generous bursary.

Submit the official application form to by the closing date of 5pm on March 1st 2016. We will inform successful applicants soon after the closing date so that they can book their travel to Korea.

Please download the application form the GARNet Blog.
