Scientific and organizing committee of the 25HSKIKI, in cooperation with IUPAC, has provided funds for bursaries to cover, partly or entirely, the costs of participating in 25HSKIKI to a limited number of most motivated graduate and PhD students (up to the age of 30).

The IUPAC funds are provided to support attendance of young scientists from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Albania and Bulgaria. In addition to this, the Scientific and organizing committee of the 25HSKIKI provides a limited number of bursaries for the young scientists from all countries. A student can be awarded only one bursary.

The procedure for allocation of bursaries is as follows:

Step 1. Login using the online application form (OAF) , deadline: Dec. 15th 2016,  23:59 CET

Carefully fill the OAF for bursaries. Before filling, prepare four PDF documents, which will be uploaded within the OAF: Supervisor’s letter of recommendation, motivation letter, CV and the abstract.

Step 2. Results of the bursaries selection procedure, Dec. 23rd, 2016

Successful applicants will be notified on the results of the selection process on Friday, Dec. 23rd, 2016. The awardees will be asked to formally accept or decline the bursary.

Step 3. Accepting the bursary, deadline: Jan. 13.th, 2017, 23:59 CET

Successful candidates will formally accept or reject the offered grant, by a reply to the email described in Step 2, as soon as possible, and no later than on Jan. 13.th, 2017, 23:59 CET. If the candidate does not reply by this deadline, his/her bursary will be offered to the next candidate from the ranking list established by the Bursary committee.

Step 4. Continuation of the registration process

After accepting the bursary, the candidate will terminate the registration for the 25HSKIKI, starting from Step 2 as described on the “Registration” page. The system will automatically take into account the awarded bursary when determining the amount of the registration fee and accommodation price.
