Early-Career Scientist Travel Awards


The Organizing Committee of the 2018 IUCr HP workshop in Honolulu will offer a limited number of travel awards for early-career scientists. These awards will provide funding to offset the cost of participation in the workshop.


Awards will be based on scientific merit and financial need. Funds may be applied only to registration, travel, and accommodations for the 2018 Honolulu workshop. Each travel award will equal $1,000 and be processed as reimbursement after the submission of original expense receipts to the UH Office of Conference Services.


The awards are intended for scientists who have graduate student, postdoctoral, or early career (untenured) faculty appointments. A preference will be given to applicants presenting a talk or poster at the workshop. The 2018 Organizing Committee will oversee the application review and award selection.

Abstract submission is not a requirement for travel awards, but priority will be given to presenting authors. We encourage applicants to submit a presentation abstract before applying for the travel award.

Application Deadline

For consideration, all application materials must be received by the application close date of April 15, 2018. Late applications will not be considered.
