What's new?

International Conference Scholarship

The CEA awards a scholarship to a mid-career teacher to attend an international conference in chemistry or chemical education. The scholarship is only offered every second year and will be available again in 2017. The previous recipient used the scholarship to attend the 2015 Biennial Conference in Chemical Education in Georgia USA, which is the largest conference of its kind, with multiple sessions on demonstrations, practical activities, secondary and tertiary teaching practice.

Applications are due by 25 May 2017
