We are very pleased to announce that the National Science Foundation, 
though their Program of Process Systems, Reaction Engineering and 
Molecular Thermodynamics of the Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, 
Environmental and Transport Systems, has provided a travel grant for young 
professors, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows affiliated with 
Chemical Engineering departments in the United States in order to attend 
the World Congress of Chemical Engineering (WCCE), October 1-5, 2017, in 
Barcelona, Spain. A brief description of this 
congress is attached to this email.

A maximum allowance of $2,000 for travel, accommodation and registration 
will be provided to successful applicants who are selected for this travel

package will consist of the following:

1. Cover letter indicating status of applicant (faculty, graduate student 
or postdoctoral fellow) in corresponding chemical engineering department, 
and indicating whether an abstract has been submitted to the WCCE (title, 
and session or specialized symposium like ESCAPE, IPIC, ICOSSE) or not. It 
is not a requirement for applicants to have submitted abstracts, although 
preference will be given to those who have. Please also indicate if you
