SCI is pleased to let you know that The Seligman APV Trust is sponsoring two travel awards this year for attendance at 12th International Congress on Engineering and Food (ICEF12).

The SCI Seligman APV travel grant is designed to support the development of PhD students, postdoctoral researchers' and industrial researchers' careers by helping them to broaden their vision and share cutting-edge knowledge at international conferences or laboratory visits. The award is aimed at those who are at a relatively early stage of their careers, typically this will be up to 10 years after completion of a first degree, or up to 10 years after starting a first position in Food Engineering.

To qualify in this application round, the individual must be registered for ICEF12 and must give an oral presentation or present a poster at the conference.

The Award shall consist of a grant of a value of £1000. A maximum of two awards are available.
Applications can be submitted by any food engineer working in academia, government, R&D laboratories and industry.

If you are eligible, please complete and submit the online application form (accessible via the link below) to the judging panel. A reference also needs to be sent to awards@soci.org to support your application. Both must be received by 28 February 2015.

Successful candidates will be selected by the Seligman APV Trustees, who will review all applications and independently score them using pre-determined assessment criteria.  Those who receive the award will be required to produce a short report (max 2 sides A4) following their attendance at the conference. Candidates will be required to deliver their report, and receipts to support their claim before payment will be made.
