C-Therm Announces Travel Bursary Fund for Students Pursuing Studies in Thermal Conductivity Analysis
March, 2009 – FREDERICTON, New Brunswick, CANADA – Adam Harris, Managing Director for C-Therm Technologies Ltd. announced the creation of a scholarship fund for students pursuing work in the field of thermal conductivity analysis. Harris commented, “we’ve seen a drop in the number of students presenting at conferences in the past few years and wanted to make it easier for them to participate and share with the community some of the great work they are involved with.”
The program is open to all masters or PhD students affiliated with an accredited post-secondary institution. The travel bursaries provide up to $1,200 in travel reimbursement to those approved, capped at 75% of costs. Eligible costs include conference registration, air fare, mileage, hotel and meals. Students must be presenting a paper, poster or leading a technical discussion on their work in thermal conductivity analysis to be eligible for the program. The program allows for flexibility in the selection of the student’s desired conference, with strongest consideration given to those pursuing participation in the International Thermal Conductivity Conference (ITCC) and the North American Thermal Analysis Society (NATAS) annual meeting.
The work presented should be focused on thermal conductivity analysis or incorporate it as a key component to the topic matter discussed. Preference is given to those specifically working in advancing applications of the modified transient plane source method for thermal conductivity analysis.
Interested applicants can submit their application via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications should include:
- Statement of interest from applicant
- Abstract of work to be presented
- Travel budget
- Letter of support from a faculty member supervising the research
Any financial support is dependent on C-Therm’s prior written approval and C-Therm reserves the right to revoke sponsorship for non-performance of duties or any behaviour reflecting poorly on the organization. Recognition of C-Therm’s contribution in sponsoring presentation of the work is to be made with placement of the C-Therm Logo in presentation or otherwise referenced.
Deadline for applications for 2009 is March 26th, 2009.
