The Executive Committee of ICHMT will be able to offer some financial support to assist scientists and engineers to participate in its symposia. Priority will be given to students and to scientists early in their career from the Developing Countries. Grants will normally cover the registration fee and not more than 50% of the other costs. The application form (pdf), application form (doc) should be downloaded, completed and sent as an email attachment no later than three months before the start of the symposium. Applicants must arrange for a statement to be supplied by a senior officer of their Institution (university, laboratory etc.) to confirm that funds are not available from that institution, or from any other source, to support the complete costs of attendance. It must be sent separately from the application, by the officer of the Institution. It should be sent by fax or airmail, on institution letterhead, directly to
