International Travel Prize 2024 – Call for Applications

The Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) is pleased to announce it will be offering a number of Travel Prizes for use in 2024 of up to £2,000 in value to post-graduate students currently enrolled in research programmes (PhD or Masters) in institutions in the UK and Republic of Ireland. The purpose of the Travel Prizes is to support the attendance of the student at an international scientific meeting of their choice, in the area of organic, biological or medicinal chemistry, through funding wholly, or in part, of registration, accommodation and travel costs. The Travel Prizes will be awarded on a competitive basis to students who complete the application process and are subsequently selected by the judging panel of the BMCS committee. Successful applicants will be also expected to present their work, in either oral or poster form, at the meeting for which the Travel Prize has been awarded, or at an appropriate RSC/BMCS organised meeting. Successful applicants will also receive a certificate to indicate their winning of one of these prestigious Travel Prizes. The prizes should be taken up in 2024, and to that end applications should be submitted to the BMCS by the 15th of December 2023. Successful applicants will be notified by the 15th of January 2024.

Submissions will only be accepted by use of the application form which can be obtained from, where they will also be able to find further details.

Application forms are also available from Dr Andrew C Williams, Hon. Chairman BMCS, via email at, and completed applications should be returned to him at that email address, including “BMCS International Travel Prize 2024” in the subject line.
