Grants

International Travel Prize

The Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) is pleased to announce it will be offering a number of Travel Prizes for use in 2022 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 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 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 2022, and to that end applications should be submitted to the BMCS by 31st August 2021. Successful applicants will be notified by the 20th September 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 2022” in the subject line.
