Travel Fellowship

ISB provides some travel fellowships (1,500 CHF each) to current ISB members. Students, junior curators, curators from low-income countries, and curators from countries suffering from natural disasters are encouraged to apply.


Each travel fellowship will be issued as a 1,500 CHF one-time payment to cover travel expenses (e.g. flight and ground transportation).

  • ISB Travel Fellows will receive the funds after the decision has been taken; organisation of the travel has to be organised by the ISB Travel Fellows themselves.
  • Once notified, ISB Travel Fellows have to register for the conference.
