The British Society of Rheology wishes to solicit applications for travel awards from its student membership, with the objective of encouraging students to disseminate their research.
Travel bursaries are available to student members of the Society to present their research at a conference that contains a strong rheological element, in situations where no other sources of funding are available to cover the whole cost of the meeting. Suitable conferences include the International Congress of Rheology, the Annual European Rheology Conference and conferences organized by the Society. Applicants for a student travel bursary must normally have been a member of the Society for 9 months, may be working worldwide and presenting research at a conference, by paper or poster. The grant will be made on receipt of a report on the event, suitable for publication in the bulletin of the society.
The closing dates for consideration of the award of a travel bursary are 28th February and 31st August with successful applicants notified by early April and late September, respectively. Applicants should include in their submission the name and location of the conference, the title, authors and abstract of the paper submitted to the conference, a breakdown of the projected costs of attending the meeting and a supporting letter from their research supervisor. The support of the British Society of Rheology should be mentioned in the conference presentation. The Society's logo may be used for this purpose. Payment of the bursary will be made on receipt of a report on the conference, suitable for publication in the Bulletin of the Society.
Applications for a travel bursary should be sent to the Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org).
