MPIF Student Grant Information

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.

"The POWDERMET Conference & Exhibition is one of the best organized conferences that we participated in during the last twelve months. The events organized on the show floor to increase booth traffic were very effective. The conference is a good opportunity to network with key leaders within the industry. We plan to continue participating in future POWDERMET exhibitions." —Deepak Madan, Magnesium Elektron
