Message to members of the APS Division of Materials Physics
Authorized by Robert Nemanich, DMP Secretary/Treasurer
Dear DMP members,

This is a reminder that December 31, 2014 is the deadline for applications for the Division of Materials Physics Ovshinsky Student Travel Awards.

Students interested in being considered for an award must apply online at: http://go.aps.org/dmp-travel

The Division of Materials Physics Ovshinsky Student Travel Awards have been established to assist the career of outstanding student researchers. The Awards are named after Stanley and Iris Ovshinsky, who had a very strong interest and commitment to scientific education. The awards have been endowed by the Ovshinsky family, their colleagues at Energy Conversion Devices (ECD) companies and all their numerous friends from many social, intellectual and business relationships.

We anticipate that there will be eight to ten $500 awards each year to enable students to participate in the APS March Meeting sessions, which are sponsored by the Division of Materials Physics. The selection will be based on merit and the student’s contribution. The committee will consist of members of the Executive Committee of the Division of Materials Physics.

Best regards,
Robert Nemanich
DMP Secretary/Treasurer
