The Aerosol Society offers annual bursaries to fund an undergraduate student summer aerosol research internship. Aerosol science is an interdisciplinary field, but is often not a major focus of many undergraduate degree programmes. Through this scheme we aim to create opportunities for undergrad students from diverse academic backgrounds to gain experience in aerosol science research.
This bursary scheme provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to spend a minimum of six weeks working on an aerosol research project in an aerosol research group. These bursaries will allow undergraduates to gain experience in aerosol science research and encourage them to pursue a career in aerosol science. The scheme is designed in such a way that potential project supervisors apply for the bursary. The successful applicants then select the best candidate to receive the bursary.
Our member students will be encouraged to present their research at a relevant Aerosol Society meeting or conference.
We are currently updating and enhancing our awards packages which will be published in January 2019 with new application deadlines. Please check here or your member newsletter for updates.
