The IEEE Magnetic Society will award travel grants of up to $1,250 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 2009. Support is for current graduate students only, including PhD candidates and those students in Masters only programs. 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. Studentsí 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.

To apply, the student must complete and submit the on-line application form. The student's advisor must submit a letter of endorsement. In addition, a second letter of endorsement, which must be from an IEEE Magnetics Society member, is also required.

The application for Student Travel is now closed. Decisions will be emailed by March 23, 2009.

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