-

With the continual support from corporate and individual sponsors, as well as the Dr. David A. Atkinson Memorial Endowment and Student Scholarship Fund, the International Society for Ion Mobility Spectrometry is pleased to offer travel awards to subsidize travel costs in attending the International Conference on Ion Mobility Spectrometry.

This is a student-led initiative – the policy was drafted by students for students. In their effort, the students from the ISIMS community have also identified the need to support international travels for early career researchers. 

Travel Award Application Review

The Travel Award applications will be reviewed by the ISIMS board members and/or ISIMS members, who do not have a student or staff applying for the ISIMS Travel Award in the current year. It will be a blind review – the applicant’s name and affiliated organization will be withheld from the reviewers. 

 

Payment of Award

Award money will be paid during the conference week via PayPal. Other payment methods could be considered and may incur a reduction in the total amount awarded to the recipient.

Important Dates

  • Travel award recipient registration deadline: June 3, 2022

  • Hotel rooms will be held for the conference until 5 pm (Memphis time) on June 27, 2022. Subject to hotel availability thereafter.
