Grants and Awards

Early Career Scientist Travel Award

Deadline: 30th September 2017

The Society annually presents a number of awards to junior scientist members of The Aerosol Society in the form of bursaries to financially assist with attendance to overseas aerosol science related conferences and events where an abstract submission has been successful and chosen for presentation. The aim of this support (towards travel/accomodation/registration fees) is to give our members the opportunity to enhance their learning and subsequent research through this type of experience.

These travel awards are also available to our junior scientist members to attend the Aerosol Society annual DDL (Drug Delivery to the Lungs) Conference and the European Aerosol Conference when held in the UK. Upon return from their conferences, our Junior Scientists are requested to submit a report detailing their experience and the value it added to their learning and early career work.
