Home / Bursaries

You are a PhD student or postdoc, you are legally employed by a public institution, and you would like to apply for a bursary which would help you attend the HTCC2018? Brilliant! The Organizing Committee and International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) provide a limited number of the IUCr Young Scientists Awards which cover partly or entirely your onsite subsistence expenses and registration fee.


​Verify your eligibility:

  1. You must be a PhD student or postdoc employed by a public university or research institution

  2. You must not be over 32 years of age

Prepare three documents in PDF:

  1. Your CV (including the list of your top 5 publications, by your choice)

  2. A motivation letter (Keep it short and sweet. Tell us how will you benefit from the HTCC, and why do you need a financial support)

  3. Your supervisor’s recommendation letter.

Verify the deadlines:

  1. Register and submit the required documents no later than Apr. 15th 2018

  2. We shall let you know on our decision no later than Apr. 27th 2018

  3. Make sure you finalize the registration procedure (from Step 2 onwards)  by May 5th, 2018

Complete the form thoroughly and make sure you upload all three PDF’s quoted above. Good luck to everyone. We are very much looking forward to seeing you in Bol.
