    Background

    The Swedish Society for Immunology, SWIMM, offers 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. If otherwise equal applications are received, PhD students and post docs will be given priority.

    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 will be asked to supply a short meeting report that will be published on the SWIMM website. Some applicants may also be asked to present their abstract at the upcoming KiiM/SWIMM meeting.  If you need to travel to this meeting SWIMM will pay your travel expenses.

    Please note! SSI and ICI meetings are not sponsored by SWIMM. Travel grants for these meetings can be applied from SSI directly. The application is made on the application form on the home page of SWIMM, including an Abstract and your merits in one document.

    Welcome to apply for the SWIMM travel grant!

    SSI will award up to 20 travel grants to applicants who fulfil our eligibility criteria (Member of a national society at the year of application; Master/PhD trainees and Post-doctoral fellows up to 5 “working years” after PhD; Presenting author for an accepted meeting abstract.).

    Application procedure: Please apply via the IUIS website, for an EFIS/EJI Travel Award https://iuis2019.org/efis-eji-travel-grants/

    If you are not successful for this award, then your application will be transferred to SSI.

    Note that there are different eligibility requirements for EFIS/EJI and SSI awards. If you fulfil the SSI requirements (< 5yrs post-PhD) but not EFIS (older than 35), then submit via the IUIS/EFIS system anyway, and your application will be passed on to SSI.

    The EFIS/EJI awards will be announced by July 1, and the SSI awards will be announced immediately afterwards, latest July 5.
