The NVT has travel bursaries available for young scientists, working in the field of toxicology, who are a member of the NVT.

The travel bursaries are meant for conference attendance. Active participation in the form of a scientific presentation (oral or poster) is a condition to be eligible for a bursary. In the case such a presentation (abstract) has not been accepted yet, a possible grant of the bursary is conditional. Scientists can receive a travel bursary as a PhD student maximally twice, of which maximally once for a destination outside Europe. A PhD student can apply for one travel grant per calendar year.

Applications are made by completing the specific application form and sending this in together with: a budget overview, a curriculum vitae, a publication list, and the submitted abstract for the scientific presentation. The application form and the attachments should be sent to the secretary of the NVT board. The NVT board evaluates the applications and awards the bursaries.

Granted bursaries are personal and for the applied destination only. For travel within Europe maximally €400 is given and for outside Europe maximally €800. In case of changes to the original plans these need to be discussed with the secretary before the departure. When a bursary is granted, the board expects a short scientific report of the meeting in English (which may be published in the TCDD) within one month after return and an overview of the ultimate costs and granted bursaries. Transfer of the bursary will occur after receipt of these documents.

Applications should be sent to:
