The RSC’s Divisions are keen to support their members with their careers and their scientific activities. To this end, we have launched two new grants which allow our members to apply for funding from their Divisions for various purposes.
If you are organising an activity, such as a small “no frills” meeting or a young researcher meeting, and you need funds, the Small Grants for Scientific Activities may be able to help, with grants of up to £2000. Our Divisions have already supported a number of people with their activities, such as Prof. Michael Glazer’s exhibition, entitled “The Two Braggs”, celebrating the centenary of the seminal work on X-ray diffraction by the eponymous father and son team.
In addition, the Small Grants are also available to support early career researchers (more than 5 years post PhD) with travel to conferences they are participating in. For full details, please visit the website at: http://rsc.li/small-grants.
We all know how important it is for young PhD students and post-doctoral researchers to participate in conferences and workshops. So, we’re very pleased to announce our new Travel Grants for PhD Students and Post-doctoral Researchers (within 5 years of completion of PhD). You can apply to your Division for up to £800 for travel to any conference or workshop anywhere in the world that will benefit you or your career. More information can be found at http://rsc.li/ecr-travel.
Both grants are available now. Application is easy; in each case, we ask that you read the terms & conditions and fill out a simple application form.
The spirit of these grants is to provide quick, flexible and transparent sources of funding for our members. You should typically receive a response from your Division within two or three months for the Small Grants and Travel Grants, respectively.
We look forward to receiving your applications.
