Funding opportunities

Meeting Attendance Bursaries for PhD researchers

We realise that in the early stages of your research career funds can be tight, particularly with conference fees and accommodation . Funding for two types of expenses can be applied for through this bursary: (i) offsetting the cost of travel to conferences being attended in person; (ii) contributions towards the costs of registration for online conferences. Your research must fall within the remit of the Geochemistry Group and you must have attended a previous Geochemistry Group Research in Progress (GGRiP) meeting (virtually or in-person). Preference will be given to: members of the Mineralogical Society and/or Geological Society; Ph.D students with demonstrably limited resources nearing the end of their research; and researchers on limited institutional funding. This is open to PhD students from
