Scientific Outreach

The program is open until midnight on April 9, 2023

The objective of the CentrEau Student Science Outreach Scholarships Program is to support the presentation of oral communications by student members at scientific events held outside their city of study. This will allow students to get experience with presentation of research results and will promote CentrEau at conferences.
