East Meets West: Nanoscience & Nanotechnology Travel Grants


Thanks to generosity of our Sponsors the NAP-2018 Organizing Commetes is pleased to announce “East Meets West: Nanoscience & Nanotechnology Travel Grants”. The grants will provide full or partial support to cover the conference registration fees, travel and/or accommodation expenses in one of the designated Conference hotels. Multiple individual awards in the amount up to €400 (or $500) for international applicants and up ₴5,000 for Ukrainian participants are expected, subject to the availability of funds. Minorities, people with disabilities and women are especially encouraged to apply.

There will be several sub-categories of these merit-based grants:

(1)  International students. The Organizing Committee will offer some travel grants to assist international students’ participation in the 2018 IEEE International Conference on “Nanomaterials: Applications and Properties.” Up to five grants covering the conference registration fees and accommodation, or travel expenses (economy fare) will be awarded. Citizens from the neighboring to Ukraine countries are encouraged to apply.

(2)  Ukrainian undergraduate students and early career scientists. Full or partial support will be provided to cover the registration fees waivers, travel or accommodation coverage. Up to 30 grants will be awarded. Besides the merit criteria, other factors taken into consideration include gender balance, diversity of the applicants’ area of research and geographical representation.

(3)  Participants internally displaced from the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. The grants will cover the registration fees, travel and/or accommodation. Up to 10 grants will be given. Senior, middle and early career scientists and educators are eligible to apply.

(4)  High School Students & Teachers. These grants will be offered on a competitive basis to exceptional high school students and/or the science teachers (e.g., physics, chemistry, biology, etc.) who excel in educating the next generation of Ukrainian scientists. Teacher applicants whose pupils regularly participate in All-Ukrainian and International Science and/or Engineering Olympiads will be given highest priority. Up to six individual grants or two team grants will be funded (a team should include at least one teacher and two high school students).  Grants will cover the conference registration fees, travel expenses, accommodation, and participation in social events, including excursion(s). Team applications will be given priority. The applicants are strongly encouraged to participate in the conference with a poster or oral presentation.

 All applicants are expected to attend the entire conference and actively participate in all technical sessions. Travel grant applications should be emailed to info@nap.sumdu.edu.ua before May 31st, 2018, with “the NAP2018 Travel Grant Application” in the subject line. Late applications will not be considered.

The travel grant application should include the following information:
- Cover Letter justifying the need for a travel grant, and amount of support requested;
- One-page Summary of the NAP-2018 presentation (with title, co-authors & affiliations);
- Detailed Resume or CV;
- List of Publications;
- Copy of the Applicants’ academic records (required for student applicants only);
- Copy of the student’s ID card (if appropriate).

All documents have to be combined into a single PDF file, with the file name that includes the applicant’s last name, followed by the grant sub-category number (1, 2, 3 or 4, see above). For example: Shevchenko_2.pdf, McClaremy_1.pdf, etc. 

The NAP-2018 Travel Award Committee will review and rank the applications, and provide recommendations to the Conferences General Chairs for final approval. Appeals will not be considered. The decisions will be emailed to successful Applicants by July 15, 2018, or earlier.
