Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund

The Community for Analytical Measurement Science (CAMS) recieves funds from ACTF to support lectureships and post docs and the work undertaken by the secretariat.

The Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund (ACTF) is a charity established for the purposes of promoting, assisting and extending the science and study of Analytical Chemistry and of all questions relating to the analysis, nature and composition of natural and manufactured materials for the benefit of the public.

The ACTF supports strategic Analytical Science Community activities. 









ACTF COVID-19 Disruption Grant

ACTF Trustees recognise the disruption that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on analytical science students. We are relaunching a disruption grant of £500 aimed at PhD students whose studies have been adversely affected by the pandemic and need additional monetary support to complete their studies.

Note, this fund is to support personal costs to help enable students to complete their studies for example rent, or other caring or living costs, and cannot be used for laboratory research costs. Students must be resident in the UK or Republic of Ireland and registered at a University in the UK or Republic of Ireland.
