GCC2021 Conference Fellowships

Apply by May 17

Updated May 6th 2021


Note: The fellowship application deadline has been extended. See the announcement.

2021 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2021) will be held 28 June through July 10, and will be virtual, affordable, and globally accessible.

Registration and abstract submission are now open.

GCC2021 includes a week of training, a 3 day conference, and a multi-day CollaborationFest. It is an excellent venue for sharing your work and learning how others are addressing challenges in data-intensive science.

But is only an excellent opportunity if you can participate. Events will either be around-the-clock (Training, CoFest), or offered twice each day, 9 hours apart (Meeting). Geography will not be a barrier to participating in GCC2021.

GCC2021 Fellowships

The Galaxy Community Fund is offering fellowships to students, post-docs, and other non-profit / academic / government researchers based in lower, lower-middle and upper-middle income countries who will benefit from attending GCC2021, and for whom the cost of registration is a barrier.

Fellowships will cover the full registration for any GCC2021 events awardees want to attend. Interested? Apply by May 7 17.

Note: An anonymous donor is funding the GCC2021 James Taylor Fellowships. They are open to students and postdocs based anywhere in the world.
