Nurturing Scientific Innovation by Assisting the Next Generation of Innovators
SLAS exists in theory to advance laboratory science and technology through education about scientific research, and to serve as a public forum for the exchange of information related to laboratory science and technology. In practice, SLAS programs, products and events empower scientific research teams to gain scientific insights, increase productivity, elevate data quality, reduce lab process cycle times and enable experimentation that otherwise would be impossible.
Education is a key element of the SLAS mission. To underscore this importance, in 2015 SLAS established the SLAS Educational Fund to facilitate educational opportunities for deserving students who aspire to become professional scientists and researchers that develop and utilize innovative technologies. The SLAS Educational Fund plays a critical role in the educational process by providing scholarships to qualified institutions and by enabling direct learning opportunities to students from across the globe.
The SLAS Educational Fund is the funding body for the SLAS Graduate Education Fellowship Grant Program which offers valuable financial support to deserving students who aspire to become the next generation of scientific innovators. See more details and access the Grant application form here.
