Starting this year, the Computing and Systems Technology Division will make up
to 10 travel awards to assist graduate students with their travel expenses so
that they can attend the AIChE Annual meeting to present the results of their
research. The awards will consist of $500, plus a ticket to the CAST Division
Dinner where the recipients will be officially recognized. To be eligible, the
student must be a member of AIChE and present a paper at the Annual Meeting
in a CAST sponsored (or co-sponsored) session.
The nomination for this award should be made by the student’s research
advisor. Each advisor may nominate only one student and only members of the
CAST Division can nominate students. Students can win this award only once
during the course of their graduate studies. The nomination package, in the
form of a single PDF file, should include:
1. The presentation abstract;
2. A single page resume, highlighting the student’s accomplishments;
3. A single page recommendation letter from the faculty advisor.
The nomination material must be sent electronically as a single package to:

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and ISR, University of Maryland; E-mail:
