The IEEE Magnetic Society will award travel grants of up to $1,000 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 2008. Support is for current graduate students only, including PhD candidates and those students in Masters only programmes. 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.
