IMA 2014 Bursary Guidelines

Objective: The primary goal of the IMA 2014 Bursary is to support young and established mineralogists from financially restricted environments as well as current full-time students, to attend and participate in IMA 2014. A prerequisite is that an applicant has to present (accepted poster or oral presentation) at IMA 2014, and the applicant has to be actively involved in research.

All bursaries are subject to availability of earmarked sponsorship (no guarantees). The amount of the bursary will be determined by the judgement of the Bursary Committee, subject to availability of funds and merit, and will include at least a sponsored registration fee.

Application Guidelines: 
The application deadline is 16 March 2014. Applications are submitted online together with abstract submission on the same web form.
Applications should contain the following:

  1. The submitted abstract(s) for poster or oral presentation.
  2. Clarity on whether the applicant is a student, young scientist or from a financially restricted area.
  3. Short (max. 150 words) motivation for the bursary application, including a summary of current research, financial need and how attending IMA 2014 will benefit the applicant’s future academic career.
  4. The applicant's abbreviated curriculum vitae, including an academic record.
