  The Materials Research Society Foundation has a limited number of Postdoc Hardship Registration Grants available for those attending the 2017 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit. Recipients of these grants will receive a reimbursement of either $260.00 (members) or $327.50 (non-members), representing ½ of the registration fee.

Priority will be given to postdocs who have an accepted abstract for the 2017 MRS Spring Meeting.  20 grants have been reserved for postdocs outside North America and 10 are reserved for postdocs inside North America. Grants will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis within these parameters.

Recipients will be notified upon approval of their application, on or before March 27, 2017, and must be pre-registered for the Spring Meeting.  Reimbursement checks will be available for pick-up at the Meeting.

How to Apply

  • Complete the Postdoc Hardship Grant Application.
  • Provide a letter from your advisor/supervisor stating that you are applying for the grant due to a financial hardship.
  • Email the application and advisor/supervisor hardship letter to foundation@mrs.org. Applications submitted without the hardship letter will not be considered.
