Application deadline for conference grants has been extended!
We are pleased to announce that InterPore Foundation for Porous Media Science and Technology (InterPore Foundation) would once again like to offer a significant number of conference grants to scientists from academic institutions from countries with lower- or middle-income economies, as defined by the World Bank (20 in total) and to graduate students (50 in total).
These grants include waving of the conference fee of the now online InterPore2020 conference.
Applicants must have a presentation at the online InterPore2020 conference.
Application package should include:
- a copy of the CV and
- a statement of justification of no more than 1 A4 page, explaining how presentation in the conference will benefit the applicant's academic development and career,
Students need also to provide a letter of support from supervisor or head of department.
Please send the full application package to Karolin.Weber@InterPore.org no later than July 29th.
The grants will be awarded based on applicants' academic attainment, quality of their research abstracts. Applications for conference grants for the physical InterPore2020 conference will be accepted for the online InterPore2020 conference unless they will be withdrawn.
We are pleased to announce that InterPore Foundation for Porous Media Science and Technology (InterPore Foundation) would once again like to offer a limited number of conference grants to students, as well as to scientists from academic institutions from countries with lower- or middle-income economies, as defined by the World Bank.
At InterPore2019, ten participants were offered a grant which covered their registration fee. Unfortunately, due to a lack of funds for travel expenses, only seven of those recipients were able to attend the conference. We have realized that for students and scientists from countries with lower- or middle-income economies, providing the registration is simply not enough. In addition to paying the registration fees for those participants, the InterPore Foundation would like to provide up to €500 per recipient from those selected countries to go towards travel costs. However, the necessary funding for providing these grants is currently beyond our financial possibilities. That is why this year we are calling on your help! Please consider making a donation to InterPore Foundation in any amount. Your generous support will help students and scientists, who would not otherwise be able to attend InterPore2020, gain experience and exposure and build their scientific network at an international conference. The number of grants we can provide is dependent on the donations of people like you!
"Receiving a conference grant from InterPore Foundation made attending InterPore2019 possible for me. Participating at this year's conference helped to strengthen my research, grow both my friendship and scientific networks, and engage with pioneers of porous media. Such a nice socio-scientific experience would not have been possible without this grant." -Nasrollah Sepehrnia, 2019 InterPore Foundation Conference Grant Recipient
"Because it is becoming increasingly difficult to get research funding from government agencies in Brazil, the grant provided by the Interpore Foundation was crucial in allowing my participation in this important conference. Thanks to the InterPore Foundation, with this grant I was able to present my work and get important feedback from internationally-recognized researchers attending the conference." -Fabricio Simeoni de Sousa, 2019 InterPore Foundation Conference Grant Recipient
