AWARDS AND SCHOLARSHIPS

 

IUVSTA-ELSEVIER STUDENT AWARDS

 

1. AIMS

The scheme is designed to give partial financial support to younger research students (age less than 30 at the end of the year of the conference) to help them to attend IUVSTA meetings and conferences at which they are presenting a paper.

2. PROCEDURE

a) Elsevier will agree to provide a certain amount of funding in any current year. Once the system is established this agreement will be made by 1st December of the previous year.

b) IUVSTA will nominate the conferences to be supported in the year, indicating how much should go to each, and will provide the names and addresses of the conference chairpersons to Elsevier.

c) Each conference chairperson will contact Elsevier with details of the conference bank account so that the money allocated can be transferred well before the meeting time.

d) Conference committees will issue standard application forms (provided by IUVSTA) on request and these must be completed, countersigned by a member of the higher education establishment (who will confirm that the student is enrolled in a research degree course) and submitted to the conference chairperson in time for the paper selection meeting.

e) The Conference chairperson will arrange for the selection of successful applicants from those with papers accepted and will notify the students. The successful applicants will come from a wide range of international research laboratories and no more than one will be from any single laboratory.

f) Successful applicants must send a letter within 2 weeks, countersigned by a member of their establishment, confirming that they will attend and will accept the offer. Any awards not confirmed will be re-allocated.

g) A list of successful applicants will be displayed at the conference registration desk with acknowledgment to Elsevier.

h) All awards will be handed out as cash at the time of registration in a convenient (normally local) currency. The recipient will sign for the funds provided.

i) Any cash not claimed will be passed on to the next IUVSTA conference chairperson to supplement the awards for that meeting.
