x-ray and gamma-ray instrumentation

Registration Fee (without waiver): $500.00

Travel subsidies and registration fee waivers available. And while the Dunlap Institute is able to provide travel support to some students, we strongly encourage all students to explore sources of funding from their home institutes or countries. Many universities offer poorly advertised student travel support in the form of bursaries, grants or scholarships.
This support is often available through a local Dean’s office, Faculty office, graduate student union or school of graduate studies.
