Conference bursary Food and Drink SIG 2017


The Food and Drink SIG award prizes of up to £500 to undergraduate and postgraduate students as an incentive to participate in an engineering activity which is related to the food and drink industry. The bursary is to contribute towards the registration, travel and accommodation costs to help make conferences or events more accessible to students.

Prizes are awarded competitively and preference will be given to members of IChemE Food and SIG (you are entitled to one free SIG membership as an IChemE member!) and to those presenting a paper or poster at an event.

All we ask in return is for a short report about the conference or event to publish in our newsletter. Applications can be made using the link below. Contact us for more info at
