National Science Foundation Student Grants


The National Science Foundation (NSF), the Metal Powder Industry Federation (MPIF) and the CPMT/Axel Madsen Conference Grants provide students with the opportunity to participate and exchange ideas with leading researchers and engineers from worldwide industry and governmental facilities, as well as the students and faculty from both domestic and international universities. The recipients attend the full conference, giving them the chance to learn the latest research areas and results in powder metallurgy fields of interest. These opportunities will not only improve the students’ knowledge in the field, but also develop scientists and engineers who are ideally suited to create the next generation of designs in powder metallurgy and metal additive manufacturing that will push materials and manufacturing capabilities.

Students will present a 10-minute synopsis of their poster during the Grant TNT sessions. Review the schedule.

National Science Foundation LogoMPIF is grateful to the National Science Foundation for its support of students to attend the POWDERMET2019 & AMPM2019 annual conferences. This support provides student participants with opportunities to exchange ideas with leading researchers and engineers from worldwide industrial and governmental facilities, as well as with students and faculty from both domestic and international universities. Student participants will learn the latest research areas and results in powder metallurgy fields of interest. These opportunities will not only improve the students’ knowledge in the field, but also develop scientists and engineers who are ideally suited to create the next generation of designs in powder metallurgy and metal additive manufacturing that will push materials and manufacturing capabilities.
