A limited number of bursaries will be available for graduate and PhD students and young scientists (under 35)  to cover partially their travel and subsistence expenses. Application will be open after notification of selected students (3oth April).

IUCr inter-regional bursary fund

The IUCr has established a separate inter-regional bursary scheme for young scientists attending the annual meetings of the Regional Associates.

This is additional to the young scientist support that the IUCr already provides and is aimed at facilitating the attendance of young scientists from the area covered by one Regional Associate at a meeting of a different Regional Associate. The aim is to broaden the knowledge of the awardees and enable them to establish contacts that will be of great help to them in their careers.
