Do you make conference support grants?

Yes, JRS makes conference support grants.  We support conferences related to biodiversity informatics and to biodiversity informatics for Africa.  We also have provided support to have conference ‘tracks’ or symposia related to biodiversity informatics within domain-specific conferences. For example, in 2018 we supported biodiversity informatics content at the International Dipterology Conference in Namibia and the Pan African Fish and Fisheries conference in Malawi.  We have also supported travel of African scientists to international conferences on biodiversity informatics.  We do not provide individual travel support grants.  Conference support is generally modest and has ranged from $1,000-$20,000 depending upon the relationship to our strategy.
