Dear DMP Members,

This email announces the application process for the Ovshinsky Student Travel Awards for the APS March Meeting 2019.

Students should apply online by November 20, 2018 for the APS March Meeting 2019. Advisors will be asked to complete their letter of support by December 5, 2018.

The Division of Materials Physics Ovshinsky Student Travel Awards have been established to assist the careers of 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 their numerous friends from many social, intellectual, and business relationships.

We anticipate that there will be ten $500 travel awards and ten $150 honorable mention recognitions 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 committee will consist of members of the executive committee of the Division of Materials Physics.

Best regards,

Charles Ahn
DMP Secretary/Treasurer
