As you prepare your submissions to the area 10 sessions, please
keep in mind that we will be continuing the graduate travel grant
program that was started last year. The CAST 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)
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 student's AIChE member number;
2. The presentation abstract;
3. A single page resume, highlighting the student's accomplishments;
4. A single page recommendation letter from the faculty advisor.
The nomination material must be sent electronically as a single package to:
Raymond A. Adomaitis, CAST Graduate Travel Grant Chair, Department of
Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and ISR, University of Maryland;
E-mail: [log in to unmask]
August 1, 2008. Award winners will be announced by September 1, 2008.
The review process will be coordinated by the Graduate Travel Grant Chair
The awards consist of $500, plus a ticket to the CAST Division Dinner at
the Annual Meeting, where the recipients will be officially recognized and
presented with the check.
