fPET-2012 Travel Support Awards

By , July 9, 2012 1:15 pm

fPET 2012 is able to offer partial travel support awards for a few persons to further encourage participation from younger scholars who may have limited means.
Qualifications: Promising scholars under 35 who have submitted an abstract to the fPET web site.
Selection and awards

will be made on the basis of the CVs of the scholars, their travel distances and costs, the quality of their abstracts, and the appropriateness of topics in relation to other submitted abstracts. (For example, if an abstract proposes to present a paper on

philosophy of engineering in Russia, and there are no other abstracts even closely related to this same topic, it would probably be rated higher than a proposed abstract on a topic also addressed by five other abstracts.)
Funds available are modest but might be used to convince home institutions to provide further support.
Applications are due by August 1 and are simple. Just send us an email to Wang Nan (wangnangucas@gmail.com) with 2-page CV attached affirming that you are under 35 and may not be able to attend fPET without some supplementary funding support. Include an estimate of your travel costs.
Decisions and announcements of awards, which will be influenced by the number of requests and expenses, will be made by August 31, 2012
