Are you a PhD student or post-doctoral researcher? Are you planning to travel to a conference or site visit, and in need of funds? Then look no further than the SCI Travel Bursary scheme!
SCI offers travel bursaries of up to £1,500 which contribute towards the development of PhD students and post-doctoral researchers. Previous travel bursary winners have travelled the globe and have gained more than just financial support.
Through their bursary they have broadened their vision and been able to share cutting-edge knowledge with an international audience whilst networking with eminent scientists from around the world.
SCI members* who are in the early stages of their career are invited to apply for a travel bursary to attend a conference, or to support travel in connection with their work and development. Reflecting SCI’s multidisciplinary nature, we offer several Travel Bursaries in a vast array of scientific disciplines. Our Travel Bursary Winners come from diverse backgrounds - from food and agrisciences, through to environment, energy, materials and health.
We are now accepting applications for the travel period 1 January - 30 June 2017 (or between 1 December and 30 June for Rideal bursaries). Visit our travel bursaries page, by clicking on the link below, for more details and to access our online application form.
