SWIMM Travel Grants

    SWIMM funded grants to attend onsite or digital scientific conferences in immunology

    The Swedish Society for Immunology, SWIMM, offers its members the opportunity to apply for travel grants twice a year. Grants will be given to members for active participation (poster or oral presentation) in a conference that covers any field of immunology. All members can apply but PhD students and post docs will be given priority. In light of the ongoing pandemic and remaining restrictions in travel, SWIMM will also grant funding to cover registration fees for active participation in online scientific conferences in immunology. SWIMM may also grant funding to visit laboratories to learn new methodology, if travel restrictions do not prevent this.

    Please note! SSI and ICI meetings are not sponsored by SWIMM. Travel grants for these meetings can be applied for from SSI directly.

    The application for the SWIMM travel grant is made on the application form HERE, including an abstract and your merits in one document.

    Applications will be evaluated by the SWIMM board based on the scientific value of the abstract. The motivation text and previous experiences will be taken under consideration during the evaluation.

    Members who receive a SWIMM travel grant are asked to acknowledge SWIMM in their meeting presentation. SWIMM will publish the name, affiliation, abstract title and scientific meeting of grantees on the SWIMM website.

    SWIMM will consider applications that has been submitted between 1st of March to 1st of April and between the 1st of August and 1st of September. The applications must be for conferences not starting before the deadline of the application and take place within 9 months after the deadline of the application. You need to have paid membership the same year to be eligible to apply for travel grants. 

    Welcome to apply for the SWIMM travel grant!
