Student Travel Grants

The IEEE Magnetic Society will award travel grants of up to $1000 each to a limited number of students working in basic and applied magnetism. These grants are intended to partially offset travel costs to attend Intermag 2014. Support is for current graduate students only, including PhD candidates and those students who are nearing completion of a Master's degree but are not continuing on for a Ph.D. Postdoctoral fellows, undergraduates or non-students are not eligible. Preference will be given to students who are student Members of the Magnetics Society, nearing completion of their graduate studies and presenting conference papers. Students’ advisors are required to be members of the Magnetics Society. Students who have previously received travel support from the Magnetics Society for any conference are not eligible.

The application process will open after confirmation that digests has been accepted for Intermag 2014 (February 03, 2014).  At that time please submit your application for a student travel grant via the link which will be provided below. For the application to be considered, the student must complete and submit the on-line application form. The student's advisor must submit an on-line letter of endorsement. In addition, a second on-line letter of endorsement, which must be from an IEEE Magnetics Society member, is also required.

The deadline for applications is March 7, 2014. Incomplete or late applications and endorsement letters will not be considered.

Applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision about a week after.

Note: Travel grants are a reimbursement for actual expenses. So the students must attend the conference and submit receipts afterwards to the student travel coordinator, which then are processed and reimbursed by IEEE. Checks will neither be sent in advance nor issued directly at the conference.  

Shortly after the conference grant recipients must submit a short account of their experience for possible inclusion in the Magnetic Society Newsletter.
