The UK Surface Analysis Forum (UKSAF) is pleased to announce a number of student travel awards. Each award will provide a contribution towards the expenses of a student presenting their work at an international conference. Awards of £500 are available for international conferences in the UK or EU and £1000 for other locations.
UKSAF have allocated £2000 for travel awards and, in the case that applications exceed this allocation, awards will be made to those applications deemed by the UKSAF committee to have the most relevance to surface analysis, the highest quality of contribution and the most prestigious conference. Winners of the UKSAF travel awards are invited to present their work at a future UKSAF meeting.
Applicants must currently be a registered student (full or part-time), and be a member of UKSAF i.e. have attended at least one UKSAF Meeting within the last three years. The applicant must also have had an abstract accepted for presentation (oral or poster) at the conference, and this work must include the use of surface analysis techniques. If the student is currently studying at a university outside the UK or Ireland, the work to be presented must have been carried out in, and have a co-author from, a British or Irish university or company.
To apply, please send details (name and abstract) including proof of abstract acceptance, or details of the decision date, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure that the title line of the email is ‘UKSAF travel award application'
The deadline for applications is: 31 July 2018
