Gordon F. Kirkbright Bursary Award 2018

Gordon F. Kirkbright Bursary Award, 2018

The Gordon F. Kirkbright bursary award is a prestigious annual award that enables a promising student/non-tenured young scientist of any nation to attend a recognised scientific meeting or visit a place of learning. The fund for this bursary was established in 1985 as a memorial to Professor Gordon Kirkbright in recognition of his contributions to analytical spectroscopy and to science in general. Although the fund is administered by the Association of British Spectroscopists (ABS) Trust, the award is not restricted to spectroscopists.

Applications are invited for the 2018 Gordon Kirkbright Bursary. To download an Application Form or for further information visit,, or contact
