Euro Evo Devo Travel Scholarships for participation in the Helsinki meeting

Dear members of the EED,

At the European Society for Evolutionary Developmental Biology we are strongly committed to the values of diversity, equality and inclusion. Our mission is to make science a more inclusive, engaged and equitable place, ensuring that we have different perspectives to create a better environment where everyone feels welcome.

Therefore, at this year’s EED meeting (, we would like to offer a limited number of full scholarships (travel to the conference, accommodation and conference fee cover) to students from low and middle income countries. To be eligible for the scholarship, you must be based at a research institution in a research4Life Group A or Group B country (see list here: We invite eligible applicants to apply in order to present their work at the meeting, to network with scientists from around the world, and to have their work recognized by their peers. Individuals from disadvantaged groups and early career researchers are especially encouraged to apply for this fellowship program.

Fellowships will be awarded by a selection committee to eligible students who meet a set of criteria (country of research organisation, career stage, justification, and scientific abstract). Successful awardees will be notified before the Euro Evo Devo abstract submission deadline, so that a registration to the conference is not required until a decision has been made on the scholarships.

Please apply via this Google form by January 10, 2024:

Best wishes,
Rainer Melzer (secretary) on behalf of the EED executive committee and local organizing committee
