FEMS-ASM Mäkelä-Cassell Travel Award for Early Career Scientists

The FEMS-ASM Award supports the reciprocal exchange of one member from each organization to present his/her research at the other organization’s main conference. It has been designed to benefit early career scientists from both organizations by giving them the opportunity to present their work overseas and experience the best of microbiology in the partner country.

ASM will select the member attending the biannual FEMS Congress and FEMS will select the member attending the ASM General Meeting occurring in intermittent years when no FEMS Congress is held.

These awards are to support travel and living costs of the grantee only.

FEMS Applicants

FEMS will select the member attending the ASM General Meeting occurring in 2022. Applicants should be microbiologists active in research and be current PhD (or equivalent) student or recipient of PhD within the past five years. They should be members of a FEMS Member Society.

ASM Applicants

ASM will select the member attending the World Microbe Forum occurring in 2021. Applicants should be microbiologists active in research and be current PhD (or equivalent) student or recipient of PhD within the past five years. They should be members of ASM.

Apply

Submit an abstract and travel award application via the abstract submission site for the meeting. Include the following documents when submitting:
