The Gordon F. Kirkbright bursary award is a prestigious annual award that enables a promising student/non-tenured young scientist of any nation to attend a recognised scientific meeting or visit a place of learning. See previous winners here.
The fund for this bursary was established in 1985 as a memorial to Professor Gordon Kirkbright in recognition of his contributions to analytical spectroscopy and to science in general. Although the fund is administered by the Association of British Spectroscopists (ABS) Trust, the award is not restricted to spectroscopists.
Applications are invited for the 2018 Gordon Kirkbright Bursary.
To download an Application Form, or for further information visit abstrust.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for entries is 31 December 2017.
