“(ECS has) done an excellent job bringing the electrochemistry community together and transitioning the conference to an online platform in these challenging times. I am very grateful to have been awarded a travel grant, enabling me to share my work and to learn from the great work of others at PRiME 2020. The experience was truly rewarding. I greatly appreciated the opportunity to exchange ideas with researchers from all over the world.”

“It was an honor receiving the travel grant from The Electrochemical Society! Although everything looked a lot different this year, and we were not ‘traveling’ to the conference, ECS provided a complimentary registration to the conference and year membership to the Society! Receiving the email of acceptance was a highlight of my week, encouraging me to continue in the midst of a very unprecedented time.”
