Student conference grants

The section gives a limited number of grants to students, mostly to support attendance at international conferences

Applications are now open for support to attend IUSSI2018. The application form can be downloaded here.

Please return completed applications to the Sections' e-mail address NWEuropeanSection.IUSSI@gmail.com by 5 pm (UK time) on the 10th of April. We realise this is a relatively short time window, but we are still aiming to distribute decisions prior to the deadline for early bird registration on the 15th April. 

Note that it is a requirement that applicants be presenting either a poster or a talk, or be organising a symposium in order to be eligible to apply for the awards.  It is also a requirement that applicants had paid their membership for 2018 by the end of January 2018, as the number of paid-up members we had determines how much travel funding our branch will be awarded from Central IUSSI.  Applications from members who are not students but have no other sources of funding will be accepted - but priority will be placed on supporting applications from students, particularly those in the latter stages of their studies.  If you have any questions please contact Liz Duncan e.j.duncan@leeds.ac.uk.
