A major aspect of the Division's activities is the holding of an Annual Cereal Chemistry Conference. Both oral and poster presentations are made at these conferences, and a proceedings book and CD are prepared after the conference and distributed to attendees and Division members. Instructions for preparing abstracts and proceedings are available on this web site.

Conference Scholarships

*Applications for the Conference Scholarships close on Weds 15 Dec 2010*

The Cereal Chemistry Division is pleased to provide financial support to assist student members in attending both domestic and international conferences, meetings and workshops. The purpose of the Conference Scholarships is to contribute to the quality of Australian cereals research through the unique and valuable opportunities that conferences offer, such as access to the most current results, experience in presenting, insightful feedback and guidance from field leaders, and the chance to build professional networks.

Up to $1,500 is awarded to successful applicants for international conference attendance, and up to $500 for domestic conference attendance. Funds may contribute to the costs of registration, travel, accommodation, etc., depending on individual circumstances. The decision to grant funding is made by an appointed panel, and is based the relevance of the conference to Australian cereal science and the expected contribution of attendance to the quality of the applicant’s own studies. The committee may consult with the applicant’s supervisor during this process. To be eligible, students must be members of the CCD and must be presenting at the intended conference, in either talk or poster format.

Conference Scholarships are awarded twice a year, with applications closing on 1st June and 1st December each year. To apply, students should complete an application form (available here) and submit this, along with the relevant paperwork including the conference website, quotes for travel costs and presentation abstracts to the CCD secretary Helen Taylor at helen.taylor@industry.nsw.gov.au .

For further information about the Cereal Chemistry Division's Scholarships, please contact the Chair of the Scholarships Committee, Chris Blanchard at cblanchard@csu.edu.au .
