Conference grants and Students Travel Awards

Deadline for applications for the conference grants expired on Feb 10, 2018

InterPore Foundation for Porous Media Science and Technology (InterPore Foundation) is providing a limited number of conference grants for participants from academic institutions from countries with lower- or middle-income economies, as defined by the World Bank. The conference grants are in the form of a conference registration fee waiver. Also, travel Awards are made available to help some students gain the experience and exposure that comes from attending and presenting at InterPore conferences. The travel awards are intended to help students defray some of the costs of their attendance. See the Newsletter for details.
