Solar Chemical Network Carers Fund

The Solar Chemicals Network recognises that for some researchers caring responsibilites can present a major obsticle to event participation. We have therefore set up the Solar Chemicals Network Carers Fund to offset additional childcare costs incurred by our members attending events.


This Fund is intended to assist Postgraduate Research Students (PGRs), Post-Doctoral Research Assistants (PDRAs) and Early Career Researchers (ECRs)* registered or employed by UK universities to present their work or participate at Solar Chemicals related events.


The Carers Fund is open to applicants four times a year, in line with the Travel Awards Scheme, in October, January, April and July. It will contribute up to £500 towards the cost of additional childcare costs incurred when attending our events (including online events).


Additional caring costs may occur if you are required to:


  • Participate in events on what would normally be a non-working day.

  • Work extended hours on a normal working day.

  • Attend meetings with overnight stays.
