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
