The IBS Travel Awards Program, made available through the financial support of the International Biometric Society, IBS Regions, and individuals, provides assistance to only IBS members from a Local and Middle-Income Country (LMIC) to attend an IBC. IBC2022 will be held 10 - 15 July 2022 at the Radisson Blu Latvia Conference & Spa Hotel in Riga, Latvia.
If you are interested in attending the IBC2022 but don’t have the resources to attend, please consider submitting an application for a travel grant. This is a competitive program with limited funding, and grants will not exceed $3,000 USD.
Before applying, it is important to determine if you qualify for funding. There are several important guidelines to keep in mind.
We are hopeful that the current restrictions put into place by the persistent COVID-19 virus and variants will be improved prior to our conference in July 2022. However, we still encourage all applicants to be aware of restrictions for travel for their country and the conference host country – Latvia.
Links to COVID-19 restrictions and resources for Latvia are provided below. Take note that additional local COVID-19 resources and restrictions might be available for your country and we urge you research and to bookmark those for future review.Investment and Development Agency of LatviaMinistry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of LatviaCOVID-19 Information Website We look forward to receiving your applications and look forward to seeing you in person in Riga, Latvia in July 10-15, 2022.
