The Materials Research Society Foundation has a limited number of Postdoc Hardship Registration Grants available for those attending the 2018 MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit. Recipients of these grants will receive a reimbursement of either $285.00 (members) or $360.00 (non-members), representing ½ of the 2018 MRS Fall Meeting preregistration fee.

Priority will be given to postdocs who have an accepted abstract for the 2018 MRS Fall 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 Friday, November 16, 2018, and must be preregistered for the Fall Meeting.  Reimbursement checks will be available for pick-up at the onsite.
