2018 Travel Grant Application
Limited funds are available to help students and young scientists attend the 2018 Annual Meeting of the American Crystallographic Association, in Toronto, Canada. Preference will be given to those presenting a lecture or poster. To apply for assistance, send this completed form, a copy of your abstract, your personal statement and a supporting letter from your research advisor. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2018; no exceptions. Students and postdoctoral associates within 10 years of their PhD may apply. If you are unsure that you will be able to attend the meeting, submit the application; there is no penalty if you have to withdraw the application. Funds are non-transferable. Awards will distributed at the ACA Registration Desk at the meeting. Applicants not selected for an award are eligible for 20% discount off of a student or post doc registration. The ACA Travel Grant is meant to support students and young scientists (age cutoff is 35 years) who want to participate in an annual ACA meeting. The three most important criteria for judging the applications are the scientific merit of the proposal contribution, personal statement, as well as the expected impact the proposed contribution may have on the ACA Meeting as a whole.

Personal statement (300 word limit) should describe your educational career path. It should also address the expected role of the ACA meeting will have on your professional development, if applicable, how your function in the meeting will provide additional value to the crystallographic community.

Support letters should reflect the applicants promise and potential growth in crystallographic research or education as well as insight to the availability of travel funds.
