The Montreal Fund was created in 1995 by the Canadian Radiation Protection Association with the proceeds of the IRPA8 International Congress held in Montreal, Canada, in 1992, to enhance radiation protection worldwide by supporting attendance of young scientists at IRPA Congresses.
The Montreal Fund is supported by contributions from Associate Societies and other stakeholders.
BNMS contributes to this fund which enables participation at congresses of students and young professionals preferably from developing countries and countries that do not have IRPA Associate Societies. They are normally made directly to individuals or through the Support Committees for International and Regional Congresses.
