To encourage graduate students and junior scholars to present papers at its meetings, the Scientific Instrument Commission (SIC) will present up to three grants for each of its meetings.
The grants will cover the meeting registration, banquet, and some travel expenses. The total value will depend on need and the number of awards, but is expected to be around $500. The travel portion of the grant will be paid after the meeting at which the student presents a paper, either oral or display.
Any current graduate student or scholar within 5 years of receiving his or her Ph.D. (or equivalent graduate degree) is eligible.
To apply, the student or scholar should send the abstract of the paper to the SIC Secretary, specifying whether it is to be oral or poster. The student’s academic advisor should also send a message stating that the student is currently enrolled and will not complete the doctorate before the meeting. In lieu of an advisor’s letter, junior scholars should submit a CV.
The SIC board will make the decision and inform the recipients.
APPLY NOW for the RIO de JANEIRO meeting! The deadline is July 20, 2012.
Please send a copy of your abstract and supporting material to Sara Schechner, SIC Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please tell us whether your paper will be presented orally or by display. Also let us know if you have already submitted your abstract through the meeting website.
