Student Bursaries

Sensory and consumer science is an evolving field and it is our early career researchers who will help shape the future of the discipline. As we look to the future, we wish to encourage participation by early career scientists at the Pangborn symposium.  We particularly hope many of you will make a submission and attend our inaugural Early Career Researcher Seminar in addition to the main symposium. The 2019 Pangborn Chairs are delighted to announce the availability of bursaries for students to attend and travel to Edinburgh to share their work.

Bursary recipients will be selected by the chairs and the organizing committee based on the quality of science of the abstract and the relevance of the abstract to the conference, and Elsevier will provide financial support to help offset the cost of attending, with the exact amount depending on the location of the student’s institution.

To be eligible for a bursary award, you must be:

  • A graduate student currently enrolled in an academic institution at the start of the meeting
  • Submit an abstract for the meeting
  • Be first author on the submitted abstract

Consideration will be given to diversity in regard to institutions and countries of origin. All awardees should be prepared for any additional costs of attendance at the meeting beyond the travel award. The awardee accepts responsibility for such costs.
