Student Travel Grant Application


This award was instituted in the name of Professor Jerome B. Cohen, one of the leaders in the field of X-ray analysis, and in the training of students in this art. The award is intended to recognize the outstanding achievements of student research in this field. All students, graduate or undergraduate, who are working in the field of X-ray analysis, can submit a technical paper describing their work. The winner will be selected by a committee of researchers in the field, and notified one week before the conference. The award for the year 2011 will be in the amount of $1,000.

The following criteria applies:

  • The research must be original, of high quality, and must be primarily the work of the student.
