IX International Olive Symposium Travel Award

Thanks to the generous support from the Department of Plant Sciences at UC Davis, there will be 3 Travel Awards available for eligible students, postdoctoral fellows and early career academics to partially support the expenses for attending the IX International olive symposium. Specifically, the fellowship will cover the total cost of registration.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • demonstrate that they face financial barriers to attendance
  • be first and presenting authors of minimum one talk or poster at the conference

Priority for the Travel Awards will be given to members of underrepresented groups or from institutions not traditionally represented at the conference who have research interests in olive and whose attendance would broaden participation at the conference.

To apply, email the information listed below to giumarino@ucdavis.edu. Please use the following subject line: "ISHS Olive Symposium Travel Award Application".

  • Your name and title of abstract.
  • Whether you are a graduate student, a postdoctoral fellow or an academic.
  • University name and advisor name (for graduate students and post doc fellows)
  • A short statement (max 1200 characters) describing why you believe you should be the recipient of this award, how you would contribute scientifically to the symposium and why attending the meeting would be beneficial to you.
  • (Optional) The ISHS, UC Davis and the Symposium Organizing Committee strongly encourages applications from members of underrepresented groups for these awards. Please indicate if you are part of an underrepresented group (in terms of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, etc) and/or if you work an institution that is not typically represented at ISHS conference.
  • Specify if you want your application to be kept confidential

Application deadline will be on 15 February 2022, the same as abstract submission. Attendants that have already submitted an abstract can also submit an application.
