Young Researchers' Fund

The Radiochemistry Group is pleased to announce the availability of funds to promote radiochemistry by encouraging students to discuss and disseminate their work during their radiochemistry training period. 

Examples of financial assistance the RCG will normally consider are payments or part payments for attendance and travel to conferences, symposia, workshops etc. Applicants are strongly encouraged to be Radiochemistry Group members. 


  • Applications are particularly encouraged for Radiochemistry Group endorsed meetings and we prefer applications to be in electronic format.
