IPPA Travel Fund


The International Photoacoustic and Photothermal Association announces the formation of the Andrew Tam Travel Fund for support of travel expenses to photoacoustic and photothermal conferences. The fund has been endowed through the generous contribution of Mrs. Eugenia Tam, the wife of the late Andrew Tam. The interest on the endowment will be used to provide travel funds for those scientists who normally would have financial difficulty in attending the conference. There are no restrictions on the country of application or the location of the conference.

Application for the funds should include the applicant’s curriculum vitae, and a short abstract of the work to be presented at the conference, and the amount of funding requested.  Applications must be received at least two months before the conference. For the 2017 ICPPP19 in Bilbao, Spain, the deadline for receipt of applications by the IPPA is Friday, May 12, 2017.
