The Keith Prout Crystallography Fund

Keith Prout Crystallography Awards may be given to graduate students and postdoctoral workers within five years of obtaining their PhD in order to promote work in crystallography. Travel grants are awarded up to £300 depending on the destination and cost, and awards are usually limited to £300 in any three-year period. Additionally, awards of up to £400 will be considered for applicants attending IUCr in Melbourne, Australia in 2024.

Applications for conference travel support are normally conditional on the applicant submitting an abstract to the conference.

Successful applicants will be expected to submit a short report summarising their experience upon return, and any money that is not used during the conference must be refunded to the Keith Prout Crystallography Fund.
