Student Presentation Award Finalist with Travel Support

 

The CAST Division normally makes 5 travel awards each year to assist graduate students with their travel expenses associated with attending the AIChE Annual meeting to present a research paper. The awards consist of $500 plus a ticket to the CAST Division Dinner where the recipients will be officially recognized.

 

To be eligible, the student must be a member of AIChE and present a paper at the Annual Meeting in a CAST sponsored (or co- sponsored) session. The nomination for this award should be made by the student's research advisor. Each advisor may nominate only one student and only members of the CAST Division can nominate students. Students can win this award only once during the course of their studies. The nomination package, in the form of a single PDF file, should include:

  1. The presentation abstract;
  2. A single page resume, highlighting the student's accomplishments;
  3. A single page recommendation letter from the faculty advisor;
  4. A statement stating the student will be presenting this paper.

 

Furthermore, because all Presentation Award Finalists/Travel Grant recipients will be judged for the CAST Directors' Student Presentation Award, the following additional requirements apply:

  1. The candidate must be an undergraduate or graduate student when the abstract was submitted;
  2. An award can be shared with multiple students in the case of a tie vote in the awards committee or if multiple students orally present the winning presentation;
  3. Awards will be determined by the quality of the technical content as described in the abstract, quality of the presentation slides, and quality of the oral presentation;
  4. At least two weeks prior to the start of the Annual Meeting, students will be required to submit the current version of their presentation and a description of the technical importance of their work as a single pdf.

 

Deadline - August 10 for the first 4 items. Note that the student's AIChE membership number must be a part of the nomination package. The nomination material must be sent electronically as a single package to: Carl Laird (lairdc@purdue.edu). Award winners will be announced by September 4.

 

Review process - The review process will be coordinated by the Student Presentation/Travel Grant Chair, and the presentations will be judged by the CAST Directors and other members of the CAST EC.

 

Awards - Travel grant awards consist of $500, plus a ticket to the CAST Division Dinner at the Annual Meeting, where the recipients will be officially recognized and presented with the check. Presentation award winner(s) will be honored with a Presentation Award plaque recognizing their accomplishment at the CAST Award Dinner at the following Annual Meeting.
