CONGRESS TRAVEL GRANT AVAILABLE TO YOUNG SCIENTISTS FROM LEAST DEVELOPED COUNTRIES
As you probably know, the winner of the IFSCC 2016 Congress’ Applied Research Award Winner, Rainer Voegeli of DSM, donated the full amount of his award (CHF 7,500) for travel grants for students or young scientists (<35 years old) to attend future IFSCC Conference and Congresses. DSM has also said it will also support this travel grant for the future.
In 2018 this award will be available to young scientists from Least Developed Countries as listed by the Committee for Development Policy of the United Nations (see link below). An IFSCC membership is not necessary.
How can a young scientist apply for the award to attend the IFSCC Congress 2018 taking place in October 2017 in Munich, Germany?
- Submit an abstract to the IFSCC Munich Congress by 28 February 2018.
- Send a CV and a copy of the submitted abstract to the SWISS SCC (Swiss Society of Cosmetic Chemists) at firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject line should read ‘2018 Travel Grant submission’
The aim is that the winner of the travel grant will present his or her work as either a poster or a paper at the Munich Congress. Therefore, the winner of the travel grant will be chosen from those applicants who had a paper accepted by the Munich Congress Science Committee.
The final decision of award winner will be made by the board of the SWISS SCC together with Rainer Voegeli.
The award will pay for round-trip coach/economy class airfare, Congress Registration Fee and 4 nights at a hotel in Munich.
Rainer Voegeli’s motivation
“Some of our recent research has been performed in Africa and our African colleagues significantly contributed to the winning of the 2016 IFSCC’s Applied Research Award. Thankfully, I not only could locally monitor these studies but I was also able to learn a lot about skin of different ethnicities in the region and the circumstances under which the research is conducted there. Thus, our aim is to use the prize money of the 2016 IFSCC’s Applied Research Award for travel grants to enable young talented scientists to attend and contribute at IFSCC events. We think this will increase the diversity of the audience on the IFSCC events and in the long term the one of the IFSCC itself.”
