The Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund (ACTF) is a charity that promotes and assists the science and study of analytical chemistry, including matters relating to the analysis, nature and composition of natural and manufactured materials for the benefit of the public. ACTF is an active partner of CAMS, providing funds to support academic awards (including Lectureships, PostDocs, Fellowships and PhDs), events and secretariat activities.
More recently, ACTF has recognised the disruption that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on analytical science students and launched a £500 Disruption Grant aimed at students in the last 6 months of their PhD who would benefit from additional monetary support. Funding supports personal costs (e.g. rent or other caring/living costs) and cannot be used for laboratory research costs.
