ECCO Grants

Following up on a decision taken by the AGM of September 2022, young scientists who want to participate in ECCO annual meetings can apply for financial support by ECCO. Grants will cover the full registration fee for the meeting, and in addition provide support for travel and/or accommodation costs up to a maximum of € 200 per grantee.

Who can apply for the grant?

Undergraduates, PhD students and early career postdocs working at or affiliated with a microbial resource centre, including non-ECCO member culture collections. Tenure staff of collections are not eligible.

How can I apply?

You can apply by emailing your CV, a letter of recommendation signed by the collection manager, and an abstract of your work to the secretary of the ECCO Board by 16th of June 2023. Registration to the meeting can wait until the decision is made.

If I get the grant, how will I be reimbursed?

ECCO will pay your registration fee directly to the meeting organisers. During or after the meeting, you can provide the treasurer of the ECCO Board with proof of travel and/or accommodation costs made (copy of original tickets or invoices). These costs will be reimbursed up to a maximum of € 200.
