Grants & PhD offers in systematics

Student travel grant


  • being a MS or PhD candidate in a Swiss research institution
  • having a research project that includes systematics
  • submitting a talk or a poster to an international meeting
  • being a member of the SSS (10 CHF for student)

Please note that the grant might not cover all your expenses. We plan to support several students, and some years we’ll favour the attendance to a particular meeting. Projects of applicants who do not have support from their own institution will be favoured.

To apply, please send to before 30 April 2019:

  1. A description of the project, including an abstract of the presentation or poster, the budget requested and your motivations to attend the meeting (maximum 2 pages, in English)
  2. A short curriculum vitae
  3. A letter of support of your supervisor, with indications about the unavailability of internal funding for attending the meeting
