Fellowships and Grants

We are pleased to announce that the Flora Malesiana Symposium Organizing Committee are offering partial financial support for select participants to attend the 11th Flora Malesiana Symposium. The subsidy will cover both the symposium registration fees and accommodation for the duration of the symposium (7 nights in a twin-shared hotel room with another fellow recipient, from 30th June – 7th July). Please note that flights, visa, travel insurance, and daily expenses will NOT be covered.

Any recipients of this Fellowship must present an oral or poster presentation during the Flora Malesiana Symposium. For co-authored contributions, only one participant (i.e. the presenting author) is eligible for Fellowship. The selection process will be subject to the quality of the proposed work (oral or poster), and priority will be given to students and researchers from the Southeast ASEAN or developing countries.


Interested participants need to submit a single PDF file containing the following information:

  • a cover letter explaining their motivation for attending the symposium;

  • a statement of how they will cover the expenses not included by the Fellowship (flights, visa, travel insurance, and daily expenses, etc.);

  • an abstract of the poster/talk; and

  • a short CV.


All Fellowship application must be submitted as an attachment to floramalesiana11@gmail.com before 30th April 2019. Successful Fellowship recipients will be notified by 20th May 2019. The availability of funds used in this Fellowship is determined by the amount of money raised through sponsorships, therefore we strongly advice participants to diversify their funding options.
