"East Meets West" Travel Grants


The NAP-2020 “East Meets West” grant program is designed to facilitate and encourage participation of full-time students and certain underrepresented groups by providing a partial or full support to cover the conference registration fees on a competitive basis. 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 NAP-2020 are eligible to apply for the registration fees waivers sponsored by the IEEE Magnetics Society. Students who submitted their conference proceeding manuscript (4+ pages) will be given priority. If you are interested to join IEEE Magnetics Society, please apply here.

(3) Students participants presenting at the NAP-2020 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 taken into consideration include gender balance, diversity of the applicants’ area of research and geographical representation.

(4) Women in Science & Engineering. The NAP-2020 Organizing Committee encourages participation of women in the technical program of the conference, regardless of their nationality or ethnic backgrounds. Early career applicants will be given the highest priority.

All grant applications can be submitted only AFTER the abstract submission and registration at the conference website. The application should include the following information:

- Cover Letter justifying the need for a grant support;
- One-page abstract of the NAP-2020 presentation
- Detailed Resume or CV with the list of publications included;
- Copy of the Applicants’ academic records (required for student applicants only);
- Copy of the student’s ID card.

All documents have to be combined into a single PDF or DOC 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: Petrenko_2.pdf, McClaremy_4.doc, etc.

All applicants are expected to attend the entire conference and actively participate in all technical sessions.  “East Meets West” grant applications should be emailed to info@nap.sumdu.edu.ua before September 15th, 2020, with “NAP2020 Grant Application” in the subject line. The applications will be considered on first come, first-served basis, thus please do not delay! Late applications will not be considered.

The NAP-2020 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 October 1st, 2020, or earlier.
