SOT Awards

Nanoscience and Advanced Materials SS Outstanding Graduate Student Award

Deadline: January 15

An engraved plaque and cash award will be given to a graduate student whose work represents an outstanding achievement in nanoscience and advanced materials. The amount of the award ($500) will be given to a single winner or divided amongst first, second, and third place winners at the discretion of the Nanoscience and Advanced Materials Awards Committee. Selection criteria include the statement of a clear hypothesis, thoroughness of relevant nanomaterial physicochemical characterization, quality of data interpretation, potential impact, and style. Although preference will be given to Specialty Section and SOT members at large, the primary criterion for this award is the importance of the investigator’s work to the field. Thus, students in other Specialty Sections are encouraged to apply. Undergraduate students are also eligible for this award.

Materials to be submitted for the award include: Accepted SOT abstract, extended abstract (2 pages maximum, tables/figures included), student CV, and one letter of recommendation (one from primary advisor).

Please send all applications materials in a single PDF document to Vice President-Elect Phoebe Stapleton.
