To help reduce barriers to the sharing and advancement of research knowledge, we are offering competitive supplemental travel grants to allow scientists and researchers at any stage of their career to present a talk at a recognised conference in any STEMM discipline. All we ask in exchange is that you acknowledge STEMM Global's support in your presentation at the conference as well as in a social media post about your conference experience!
