Reduced Registration Rates for Developing Countries

MRS offers discounted registration rates to its Spring and Fall Meetings for individuals studying or working in developing countries.

In order to serve students and professionals from all economic sectors of the worldwide materials community, MRS offers discounted registration rates to its Spring and Fall Meetings for individuals studying or working in developing countries.

Enrolled students and working professionals from countries defined as Low-Income or Lower-Middle-Income Economies by the World Bank are eligible for these discounted meeting registration rates.

These reduced rates help provide the materials research community more opportunities to connect and learn from others around the globe, furthering the MRS vision of “building a dynamic, interactive, global community of materials researchers.”
