Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, there will be several sub-categories of these merit-based grants:

(1) Ukrainian full-time students presenting their research in the areas of nanobio interfacing and nanomedicine are eligible to apply for the registration fees waiver sponsored by the BioUkraine Initiative of the US-Ukraine Foundation. Ukrainian citizens residing and studying full-time in Ukraine are eligible. 

(2) Ukrainian and international full-time students who are the IEEE Magnetics Society members presenting their research at the conference. If you are interested to join IEEE Magnetics Society, please apply hereStudents who submitted their conference proceeding manuscript (4+ pages) will be given priority. 

(3) Students participants presenting at the IEEE NAP-2021 conference on the topics that are not covered above. Only full-time graduate/undergraduate international or Ukrainian students who submitted their conference proceeding manuscript (4+ pages) are eligible. Other factors that will be taken into consideration include gender balance, diversity of the applicants’ area of research and geographical representation.
