CNC-IUPAC Travel Awards
CNC-IUPAC established a program of travel awards in 1982 to enable young scientists who are currently working at a Canadian institution to present their research at IUPAC-sponsored conferences outside of Canada. Applicants should be within 10 years of having obtained their PhD. The awards are sponsored jointly by CNC-IUPAC’s company associates and the Gendron Fund, which was established in memory of a noted Canadian chemist who organized a highly successful IUPAC congress in Vancouver, BC in 1981. Although many IUPAC member countries have national committees that handle liaison with IUPAC, to the best of our knowledge, the Canadian National Committee is the only one that operates a travel awards program.
