The joint sponsors of the Applied Power Electronics Conference have announced the continuation of the popular travel support program of $40,000 for students planning to attend APEC 2015 in Charlotte, NC, March 17-21, 2015. Now in its tenth year, the program will subsidize a portion of the travel and conference expenses for students from around the world. A total of 43 students will benefit from this program, with some sharing the financial support with colleagues from the same institution.
The award recipients represent a cross-section of the top-quality engineering students pursuing a career in power electronics. The students are from the Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, and the United States.
The APEC Student Attendance Travel Support Award 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).
“Each of the students selected is an author or co-author of a paper accepted for presentation at APEC 2015,” said Joe Horzepa, Executive Director of PSMA. “With over 100 applicants, selection of the recipients was a challenging exercise. It is encouraging to see so many universities around the globe with world-class power electronics programs.”
