The French Crystallography Association sponsors schools and symposia related to crystallography. Applications for sponsorship will be evaluated twice a year by the Administrative Council of the AFC. Selected symposia and schools can also be awarded AFC bursaries for young researchers (PhD students and post-doctoral fellows). Sponsored events are featured on the AFC website. The event organizers in turn agree to display the AFC logo and website on their posters and programs. The event should be organized in France. The AFC also encourages the organizers to write a short report, which will be posted on the website after the event.
