Student Travel Grants

Travel grants of up to $1,000 each will be awarded to a limited number of students in the areas of basic and applied magnetism. These grants, which will be sponsored by the IEEE Magnetics Society and Science Foundation Ireland, are intended to partially offset travel and local costs related to participation in INTERMAG 2017. Support is for current graduate students only. Postdoctoral fellows, undergraduates or non-students are not eligible. To be eligible for the IEEE Magnetics Society award, the student’s advisor must be a member of the IEEE Magnetics Society. Preference for these grants will be given to those applicants who are student members of the Magnetics Society, nearing completion of their graduate studies and presenting conference papers. Students who have previously received travel support from the Magnetics Society for any other conference are not eligible for an award from either sponsor.

Please submit your application for a student travel grant via the link provided below. For the application to be considered, the student must complete and submit the on-line application form. The student’s advisor must submit an on-line letter of endorsement. In the case that the student’s advisor is a member of the Magnetics Society, they should include their membership number. In addition, a second on-line letter of endorsement is also required. To be eligible for the IEEE Magnetics Society award, this second letter must be from an IEEE Magnetics Society member. Students whose second letter is not from an IEEE Magnetics Society member will only be considered for an SFI funded grant.

The deadline for submitting applications and letters of endorsement is 24th February 2017. Incomplete or late applications and endorsement letters will not be considered. Applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision about a week after.

Note: Travel grants are a reimbursement for actual expenses. Thus the students must attend the conference and submit receipts to a representative of the student travel coordinator (details will be supplied to successful applicants). Chip and pin debit cards will be issued to awardees on the last day of the conference.

Shortly after the conference grant recipients must submit a short account of their experience for possible inclusion in the Magnetic Society Newsletter and / or a wrap up account of INTERMAG 2017.

  • To apply, the student must complete and submit the on-line application form.
  • The student’s advisor must submit a letter of endorsement.
  • In addition, a second letter of endorsement is required.
  • To be considered for an IEEE Magnetics Society grant, both letters of endorsement must be from IEEE Magnetics Society members.
  • Please note that only complete applications including all three documents will be considered.
