The Ovshinsky Student Travel Awards have been established to assist the career of student researchers. The awards are named after Stanford and Iris Ovshinsky, who had a very strong interest and commitment to scientific education. The awards have been endowed by the Ovshinsky family, their colleagues at Energy Conversion Devices (ECD) companies and their numerous friends from many social, intellectual and business relationships.
We anticipate that there will be ten $500 travel awards and ten honorable mention recognitions each year to enable students to participate in the APS March Meeting sessions, which are sponsored by the Division of Materials Physics. The selection will be based on merit and the committee will consist of members of the Executive Committee of the Division of Materials Physics.
Applications must be completed by November 21, 2016. Advisors will be asked to complete a letter of support by mid-December 2016.
