28th International Meshing Roundtable Financial Support for Students / PostDocs


28th IMR Financial Support for U.S. Students / Postdocs from NSF

We anticipate that funding will be available from NSF to support student and postdoc attendees from U.S. institutions to help defray their conference and travel expenses. Our budget should allow us to support approximately 7 students and 3 postdocs. NSF travel support will be made on a reimbursement basis and will be made to students and postdocs based on active research in the conference topics.

For each student awardee, the travel support will include the conference and short courses registration, 50% of four nights at the conference hotel at the double occupancy price, and a reimbursement of the airplane ticket.

First priority will be given to students and postdocs who will be presenting a paper at the conference. Second priority will be given to students and postdocs presenting a research abstract, presenting a poster, or participating in the meshing contest.

In order to encourage diverse participation in IMR 2019, the diversity of the applicant and whether or not the applicant has receiving an NSF travel grant to attend a previous IMR may also be considered. Underrepresented groups of students and postdocs, such as women and underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply.

A student or postdoc seeking financial support needs to submit the following documents:

  1. A one-page statement of interest describing your interest in meshing related research, how the International Meshing Roundtable Conference will be helpful to your research, and how you will benefit by attending the conference. If you are presenting a paper, please include the title of your paper in the statement. If you are presenting a research abstract or poster, please include a brief description of the research you will present in the research note or poster.
  2. A scan of your current university ID.
  3. Faculty advisors of student and postdoc applicants must also submit a letter in support of the individualís application and must provide a brief statement regarding the availability of travel funds to support the individualís travel in excess of the travel grant. The letter should be sent directly to panozzo@nyu.edu.

To apply, fill the form available at https://forms.gle/zze3ZKFcSydGfMJ17 no later than 11:59 pm EST on August 31, 2019. Decisions will be announced by September 10, 2019. If you have questions on the application process, please send an e-mail to panozzo@nyu.edu.



28th IMR Financial Support for non-U.S. Students / Postdocs

Financial support from the companies sponsoring the IMR will be available to a small number of student and postdoc attendees from non-U.S. institutions to help defray their conference and travel expenses. Support will be made on a reimbursement basis.

For each student awardee, the travel support will include:

For each postdoc awardee, the support will include:

First priority will be given to students and postdocs who will be presenting a paper at the conference. Second priority will be given to students and postdocs presenting a research abstract contest. The IMR Committee embraces the value of ethnic and gender diversity. We encourage underrepresented groups to apply, even if they do not have a paper, research abstract or poster to present.

In order to encourage diverse participation in IMR 2019, the diversity of the applicant and whether or not the applicant has received a travel grant to attend a previous IMR may also be considered. In all cases, financial need will be considered when determining the award size (which will also affect the number of travel grants being awarded).

A student or postdoc seeking financial support needs to submit the following documents:

  1. A one-page statement describing your interest in meshing related research, how the International Meshing Roundtable Conference will be helpful to your research, and how you will benefit by attending the conference. If you are presenting a paper, please include the title of your paper in the statement. If you are presenting a research abstract or poster, please include a brief description of the research you will present in the research abstract or poster.

  2. A statement of your financial need (based on the estimated cost of attending the IMR short course and entire conference minus funds available to you from your advisor or department). Faculty advisors of student and postdoc applicants must also submit a letter in support of the individualís application and must provide a statement regarding the availability (or lack thereof) of travel funds to support the individualís travel to Buffalo. A letter from the advisor in support of the student or postdocís application which includes a commitment to cover the cost of travel in excess of the travel grant will be sufficient.

  3. A photocopy of your active student ID (students only).

  4. Please send an electronic copy of these documents (as a single PDF attachment) to Dr. Trevor Robinson at t.robinson@qub.ac.uk, with the subject line of "IMR-2019 Non-US Travel Support Application".

Applications for funding are due no later than August 15, 2019. Decisions will be announced by August 22, 2019. Further instructions for reimbursement will be sent via e-mail to the selected recipients at that time. If you have questions on the application process, please send an e-mail to t.robinson@qub.ac.uk
