Various bursaries are open to members of the BCA. They are summarized here, together with eligibility criteria and application deadlines:
Arnold Beevers Bursary Fund (ABBF):
Bursaries sponsored by the ABBF are available for BCA members to attend BCA Spring meetings and other crystallographic meetings. The ABBF was set up in 2001 by the BCA council in honour of Dr Arnold Beevers. Arnold was a firm believer in the free and open exchange of scientific ideas and information. He was also a founder member of the BCA and thrived on getting together with people of all ages at BCA, IUCr and ECM meetings. For more info see the June 2001 issue of Crystallography news.
The ABBF is supported by proceeds from the BCA and several generous donations, which it gratefully acknowledges. Further contributions to this worthwhile cause are always welcome.
Other Bursaries – External Sponsor Bursaries
The ABBF is limited, and often the BCA find that they cannot support all applicants attending the BCA Spring Meeting. We are fortunate that external sponsors have been willing to sponsor those not receiving ABBF assistance. Applications for these should be made in the same way as for ABBF.
