Help InterPore Foundation enable the participation of your fellow researchers

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 InterPore2020, eighteen participants were offered a grant which covered their registration fee. To continue funding these grants 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 InterPore2021, 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

"It was my honor to receive the InterPore2020 conference grant from InterPore Foundation allowing me to participate in the important conference. I was able to present my research and work in such a great international platform, which boosted my research, extended my social and scientific networks, and broadened the scientific perspective on porous media research. With the grant, I could store such a wonderful memorable academic experience in 2020. Many thanks to the InterPore Foundation." -Lifei Yan, 2020 InterPore Foundation Conference Grant Recipient

"The conference grant for attending the InterPore 2020 conference not only helped me financially but also motivated me to a great extent to present my research in such a renowned scientific platform with a positive attitude. Although held in a completely virtual mode, the conference boosted my technical knowledge and helped me in expanding my research network. I wholeheartedly thank the organizers for the grant and for conducting such a beautiful conference in a disastrous year like 2020." -Bhaskarjyoti Sarma, 2020 InterPore Foundation Conference Grant Recipient
