Scholarships for McCrone Courses

An important McCrone objective is to increase the number of microscopy courses taught throughout the world. To this end, we offer tuition scholarships each year to full-time students and academic personnel. There is a maximum of one available scholarship enrollment per course and persons can receive only one award per year. A written application to the Director must be submitted for approval before registration. If a course fills up, persons holding a reserved Scholarship Enrollment may be bumped from a course to provide space for a paying attendee.
