APEC 2015 sponsors announce student $1,000 travel support



The joint sponsors of the Applied Power Electronics Conference have announced the continuation of the popular $1,000 Student Attendance Travel Support program to cover part of the travel and conference expenses for up to 40 students to attend APEC 2015 in Charlotte, NC, March 15-19, 2015.

Now in its 10th year, this popular program initiated by the Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA), is now jointly underwritten by PSMA and the other co-sponsors of the APEC Conference – the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) and the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS).

The recipients will be chosen by the APEC 2015 Award and Grants Committee. Application forms are available at APEC Attendance Travel Support Application. The criteria for the travel support reimbursement are:
The applicant must be an undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in a power electronics program at an accredited institution

Only students who have not received travel support in the past will be considered

The recipients must be an author or co-author off a paper that was accepted for presentation at APEC 2015

The recipient must attend APEC 2015 and submit expense receipts to the Committee

Up to two students from a single institution may each receive Travel Support. However, they may share their reimbursement with other students from the same institution who submitted applications

The recipients will be notified by the Committee by November 14, 2014

As part of the application process, students must provide information about their educational institution, degree program, the name of their faculty advisor and a brief description of their career interest and reasons for planning to attend APEC.
