The IRDG’s two student travel awards are now open for applications: the Chalmers & Dent Student Travel Award and the Francis Dunstan Travel Awards. The deadline is the end of February.
The Chalmers & Dent Student Travel Award
The Chalmers & Dent Student Travel Award has been established to recognise and support an outstanding PhD student through financial support to present their research to an international audience at the annual SciX meeting. The award is named after two previous chairs of the IRDG, John Chalmers and Geoffrey Dent, in recognition of their continuing support for the IRDG and in particular for their support of students and early career researchers. Throughout their careers, both John and Geoff were highly active in the development and promotion of the vibrational spectroscopists of the future in both academia and industry through mentoring, encouragement and inspiration.
The Francis Dunstan Travel Award
The Francis Dunstan Travel Award has been established to recognise and support an outstanding PhD student through financial support to present their research to an international audience annually at the major international conference on vibrational spectroscopy each year which is currently either ICORS or ICAVS. The award is named in memory of Dr Francis Elliott Dunstan and to honour his bequest to the IRDG and in recognition of his support for the IRDG.
This student award is an annual which will enable an outstanding student to attend and present their research at either the International Conference on Vibrational Spectroscopy (ICAVS) or the International Conference on Raman Spectroscopy (ICORS) conferences which both take place every two years on alternate years.
