Nanoscale Science and Technology Division Graduate Competition
Receive a student registration waiver for the conference!!!
As nanoscience has continued to expand its impact in diverse fields including quantum science, biology, mechanics, and energy, the Nanoscale Science and Technology Division (NSTD) has been a hub of research broadly related to instrumentation, lithography, manipulation, imaging, and translation to industry. The NSTD holds a Graduate Competition at the annual AVS International Symposium to highlight and celebrate exceptional researchers working on the frontiers of nanoscience. All graduate students presenting a poster or oral presentation in an NSTD sponsored or co-sponsored session are encouraged to apply.
To apply submit a cover letter, resume, advisor support letter, and AVS abstract to the awards submission site by the deadline date of May 1, 2020
. For eligibility, the applicant must not have received a doctoral degree at the time of abstract submission..
All finalists will receive a student registration waiver for the conference!!!
All finalists will be selected by the NSTD Awards Committee, and they will be informed by Sept. 2, 2020. All finalists must present a five minute talk (with additional time for questions) at the NSTD Awards Competition, which is tentatively planned for noon on Wednesday of the symposium week. The winner will be selected based on the quality of the talk, the responses to subsequent questions, and the level of the research. The graduate award winner will receive a certificate and a cash award of $500. This award is made possible by financial support from NSTD's sponsors, who in 2019 were Bruker, Park Systems, Asylum Research (Oxford Instruments), Nanoscribe, and SPECS TII.
