Travel bursaries for BOVA Open Network Meeting

5 competitive travel bursaries are available for scholars to attend the BOVA First Open Network Meeting on 28th March in London, UK organised in partnership with the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.  Awardees will be expected to give a poster presentation at the meeting on a topic associated with vector-borne diseases and the built environment in Africa.  Please be aware that if your abstract does not specifically address this topic then it will not be considered by the panel! 

The bursaries are open to researchers worldwide.  Fill in the application form and send in your details, along with title and poster abstract to be in with a chance!  The closing date is Wednesday 14th February at 17.00 GMT.  Please send your completed form to bova [dot] network [at] durham [dot] ac [dot] uk

Advocacy grants - coming soon!

Small travel grants will be available for Network members to conduct advocacy activities such as visiting stakeholders to explain the importance of the built environment to vector-borne diseases.  Details of how to apply for this funding will be available soon.

Pump-prime Funding - call now closed!

The BOVA Network has funding available to help pump-prime collaborative research projects that genuinely bring together researchers in the built environment with those working on the control of vector-borne diseases.

We will finance 8-10 research grants valued at between £50,000 to £100,000, each of 12 months duration. There is a two stage application process.  The first stage submission has now closed and successful applicants are being invited to submit full proposals for consideration in the next stage with a closing date of 20th February 2018!
