Young Researcher Travel Grant
The organizers of FOCAPO and CPC have secured funds from the National Science Foundation and a number of US industries to support the participation of young researchers (graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and assistant or associate professors) from US institutions. These travel grant funds will cover five (5) nights of lodging at the conference hotel (Westin Savannah Harbor) for the full FOCAPO/CPC conference.
It is anticipated that about 30 graduate students/post-docs and 15 assistant/associate professors can be awarded travel grants. If the number of applicants exceeds the target, the selection will be made competitively; priority will be given to those planning on participating in both conferences. Priority will be given to young researchers making a presentation at FOCAPO and/or CPC.
Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows need to submit two items:
1) A brief recommendation letter written by their research supervisor
2) Current curriculum vitae
The title of the oral/poster presentation and the abstract number must be included in the nomination letter.
Assistant or Associate Professors only need to send a CV and a cover letter with the title of the oral/poster presentation and the abstract number.
The application should be submitted electronically at this link:
The application is due on or before December 1, 2011. The award winners will be notified by December 12, 2011. The FOCAPO/CPC will handle housing reservations, so applicants should not make them early. Applicants however, should register for the conference by November 11, 2011.
If you have any conference questions or questions, please contact the FOCAPO/CPC Conference Manager, Robin Craven.
