Apply now for a Winter School travel bursary

Applications for student travel support to the University of Queensland-based Winter School in Mathematical and Computational Biology are open until Friday, 31 May.

Interstate or overseas students enrolled full-time in an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in a field of study relevant to Winter School, such as biology or bioinformatics, are invited to apply for partial travel support (e.g. airfare, ground transportation or accommodation.)
 
Up to ten competitive travel bursaries, sponsored by Australian Genome Research Facility (AGRF) and Bioplatforms Australia, will be awarded, each valued at $250–$500. 
 
Students must enrol for all five days of the Winter School, 1–5 July, in order to be eligible.
 
Successful students will be notified of the outcome by 12 June.
 
See the Winter School website for more information about the eligibility criteria and application process.

The Winter School is designed to introduce bioinformatics, mathematical and computational biology to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers and others working in the fields of biology, mathematics, statistics, computer science, information technology, complex systems analysis, and chemical and medical sciences and engineering.
 
This year’s Winter School features 40 invited speakers who are leaders in their field from the UK, China, Hong Kong, New Zealand and research institutes around Australia. 

QCIF and its bioinformatics arm, QFAB, are proud Winter School sponsors.
