DAS Young Analytical Scientist Travel Award

DAS is pleased to provide travel grants for its talented Young Switzerland-Based Members (MSc & PhD students, postdocs that are SCS-DAS members), who present posters or oral talks at national and international Analytical Conferences. The grants range from 500 to 1'000 CHF and are awarded at the discretion of the DAS Travel Award Committee (E Bakker, F Kalman, G Schlotterbeck, M Suter).

How do you apply:

  • Abstract of your poster or talk
  • List of estimated expenses (travel, lodging)
  • Curriculum vitae (short) and list of publications (later stage students)
  • Short Letter (email) of recommendation from your supervisor

Deadline for applications is one month prior to early bird registration deadline of the particular conference. Pending applications for funding from other societies (e.g. SGMS, IMSF, CASSS) have to be declared.

An individual may receive no more than one DAS Young Analytical Scientist Travel Award in a lifetime. The DAS Travel Award Committee will aim for a balanced distribution of the awards among the various analytical research groups in Switzerland.

Note: If other SCS affiliated societies (e.g. SGMS) are providing student travel grants for the requested event (e.g. ASMS, IMSC), DAS will not provide additional travel support.

The name of the awardees will be published on the DAS website. Each awardee will provide a short event report (latest 1 month after the conference).
