Graphene Study is now accepting applications for student grants! Applications are due by 30 May 2020.

Students and young researchers attending the Graphene Study 2020 and presenting their research as posters (as first or second authors) may apply for student grants from the Graphene Flagship project. Please read the application requirements closely and follow the instructions. Incomplete or ineligible applications will not receive funding.

The purpose of this support programme is to promote the professional development of students and early career researchers in the field.
