Travel Grants

MS&T Travel Grants

The Material Advantage program now offers $500 travel grants to student chapters in support of attending AISTech, the TMS annual meeting, or the ACerS and ASM annual meetings held at Materials Science and Technology Conference & Show (MS&T),

The student chapter may determine how the grant is spent, either to cover many students’ hotel costs, or to cover 1 or 2 students traveling from afar. The grants are restricted to one grant per chapter per academic year. All grants are issued in check form to the chapter advisor, and will be sent after the event upon verification that the chapter was in attendance. If a chapter has special circumstances that require issuance of the check prior to the meeting, exceptions can be made on a case per case basis. Travel grants will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis, so act early! Chapters must be active and in good standing to be eligible for a travel grant.

For more information, contact AIST’s Courtney Young at (724) 814-3096.
