a short CV, and
a scientific abstract of their talk/poster.
Applications should be submitted as a PDF before January 31, 2018, to the chair of SF*IRGO, Dr Renate Matzke-Karasz (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All applications will be reviewed and evaluated by the members of the advisory board of SF*IRGO.

These grants wouldn’t have been possible without the financial support of many of you to SF*IRGO. Thank you all!
Special thanks go to the voluntary instructors of the European School on Ostracoda, as well as to Elisabeth (Lotte) Kempf and Dr. Anton Waltschew for their major donations.
Looking forward to receiving many applications!
