Bergey’s Manual Trust will sponsor five travel awards for postgraduate students or other young investigators to attend BISMiS 2018 in South Africa. Three of these awards will be for any of the young participants with the other two targeting participants from Africa specifically. These awards will cover the conference registration and 3 nights of accommodation but will not cover any travelling costs to and from the meeting. An ad-hoc selection committee will evaluate the applications.
