The Canadian National Committee for IUPAC’s Travel Awards Program–A Success Story

by Chris. I. Ratcliffe

The Canadian National Committee for IUPAC (CNC-IUPAC) runs a highly successful program of Travel Awards to enable top young Canadian scientists to attend and present their research at IUPAC-sponsored scientific conferences taking place outside of Canada and the USA.

The Travel Awards scheme has been operating for nearly 25 years and is made possible by funding from the Canadian Society for Chemistry’s Gendron Fund and by CNC-IUPAC ’s Company Associates. The Gendron Fund had its origin in a highly successful

IUPAC Congress held in Vancouver, Canada, in 1981. Surplus money generated from this Congress was put into a trust fund set up in June 1982 and administered by the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC). The trust was named after Pierre Gendron,a prominent Canadian chemist.
