Travel Awards


The deadline for applying for travel awards has now passed.  We are no longer accepting applictions.

Travel Awards - 11th U.S. National Congress on Computational Mechanics

Depending on the availability of funds, we expect to award a limited number of travel grants to graduate/undergraduate students and post-doctoral fellows.  In order to be eligible to receive a travel grant, the applicant must present a poster* in the poster session, as well as make an oral presentation in a minisymposium related to their field of study.  Only full time graduate/undergraduate students currently studying at a U.S. university or post-doctoral fellows employed at a U.S. university are eligible to apply. 

We anticipate the awards to be as follows:

Graduate/undergraduate students: $500 toward travel expenses and registration fee covered.

Post-doctoral fellows: $500 toward travel expenses and $300 toward registration.

*Post-doctoral fellows do not need to submit a poster in order to be considered for a travel award, but will be required to submit one if awarded.  They will not, however, be eligible for a student poster competition award.
