Eligible students can use the application below to apply for $1,500 in travel support from the Ceramic and Glass Industry Foundation (CGIF).


The European Ceramic Society (ECerS) will host two summer school options in 2024. Applicants may apply for one travel grant.

The first summer school option, preceding the Electroceramics Conference in Vilnius, Lithuania, "Advanced characterisation on Electroceramics" will be a great opportunity to learn more about Electroceramics. This topic will also provide students the chance to exchange ideas with colleagues and lecturers taking part in the school. The "Advanced characterisation on Electroceramics" summer school will be held on August 17th and 18th at the Campus of Vilnius University.

The second summer school option, held prior to the Shaping 9 conference, "How to shape ceramic ideas into real products - laboratory excellence versus industrial needs" will aim to enrich the knowledge of the participants, widening their perspective on selected topics related to ceramic shaping processes. This summer school experience will also allow students to expand their network getting in contact with experts in the respective and related fields. "How to shape ceramic ideas into real products - laboratory excellence versus industrial needs" will be held on September 24th and 25th in Warsaw, Poland.

Each ECerS Summer School option will feature internationally renowned teachers who are experts in the field. They will welcome young researchers from research and industrial fields around the world to attend the summer school.

The CGIF is offering $1,500 in travel support to selected undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. students from non-European based universities. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must be members of The American Ceramic Society, Material Advantage, Keramos, or the Global Graduate Researcher Network.

Students wishing to apply for financial assistance are strongly encouraged to first secure support from their home institutions for the experience. To determine support eligibility, students must submit a completed application (see below).
