International Travel Prize

The RSC Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) is pleased to announce it will be offering a number of International Travel Prizes for use in 2021 of up to £2,000 in value to post-graduate students currently enrolled in research programmes (PhD or Masters) in UK institutions. The purpose of the International 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 prizes will be awarded on a competitive basis to students who complete the application process and are subsequently selected by 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 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 prizes. The prizes should be taken up in 2021, and to that end applications should be submitted to the BMCS by 31st December 2020. Successful applicants will be notified by 22nd January 2021.

Submissions will only be accepted by use of the application form which also contains guidance.  This can be found below.

Application forms are also available from Dr Andrew C Williams, Hon. Chairman BMCS, via email, and completed applications should be returned to him at that email address, including “BMCS International Travel Prize 2021” in the subject line.
