Financial support application

Under-served regions must have fair and equitable opportunities to attend the Fluorescence Nanoscopy in Bioimaging Congress (FNB). Therefore, the selection process for travel grants will follow a scheme that maximizes diversity and ensures equitable access globally; the selection approach will maximize regional and national diversity among grantees and personal experiences based on the contribution to the local and/or regional imaging community, as well as dissemination of the knowledge gained at the course as follows: Underserved regions (Up to 3 points): applicants from determined regions will receive higher scores depending on the selected country classification (See list below).
Personal implications in nanoscopy and bioimaging (Up to 5 points): Specific implementations of the knowledge acquired in the congress in professional areas will gain higher scores. Previous participation in another super resolution course also gets higher scores.
Contribution to the local and/or regional imaging community (Up to 3 points): Applicants who detail their involvement with their local and/or regional imaging community will receive greater scores.
Dissemination of the knowledge gained at the course (Up to 3 points): Applicants who demonstrate how to share the knowledge gained from this course with their colleagues and utilize it to enhance their imaging facility will receive higherscores.

The number of grantees from the same country will be limited (See list below), and only one application may be selected from the same institution. Lastly, efforts will be made to ensure equal gender representation in the following slots:

México + Centro America - 800 USD (20 slots)
South America - 400 USD (20 slots)
Brazil - 200 USD (10 slots)
