CR Barber Trust

The IOP CR Barber Trust application process is currently on hold until further notice

This fund is for PhD students who want to attend an overseas conference. You can use the grant for any part of conference attendance including:

  • travel
  • registration fees
  • accommodation

Who can apply

  • This fund is for research students who are also IOP members. It does not support post-doctoral researchers or taught master’s students.
  • You must attend an overseas conference of international standing, relative to where you live. You may not use this grant to attend a conference in your own country.
  • We normally accept up to two applicants from each college or university to attend the same conference.
  • Previous recipients of a grant from the CR Barber Trust Fund are not eligible for further funding.

How much you can apply for

Grants depend on the location of the conference. Examples of awards to applicants from the UK and Ireland are below. Awards to overseas applicants may be different.

  • £100 for conferences in Europe
  • £175 for conferences in the USA or Canada
  • £300 for conferences in the rest of the world

We will usually cover only part of the expense of attending a conference. This funding is intended to supplement funding from other sources.
