Student Conference Grant Program Expands

2018 NSF StudentsStudent attendance at POWDERMET2019, International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, and AMPM2019, Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy, could be at an all-time high this year thanks to several grant programs. In total, 75 grants have been awarded to students from colleges and universities from across the country. Students will have a technical poster on display at the conference and present a 10-minute synopsis during a Grant TNT: Talk ‘N Technology session.

For the third year in a row, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is providing 40 grants to students from U.S. colleges and universities. Students attending the conference will have full access to POWDERMET2019 and AMPM2019 technical sessions, the exhibit, luncheons, and evening events to provide ample time for this next generation of engineers to network with industry professionals. This program has been extremely well received by the PM industry and academia.

The MPIF Student Grant Program developed this year as a result of the NSF Student Grant Program’s overwhelming number of applications. One of the primary missions of the Federation is to advance the PM industry, and these students are potential industry champions. Rather than miss the opportunity to showcase PM to these additional NSF Grant applicants, MPIF’s Board of Governors decided to create a program to allow more students to attend the conference. This year, 31 grants have been awarded. All MPIF Student Grant winners will receive similar benefits and participate at the conference with a poster and presentation.

Finally, the CPMT/Axel Madsen Grant Program has been awarding conference grants since 1990. This year the four students selected are Nick Gosse and Ryan Ley, Dalhousie University; and Maude Tremblay and William Bouchard, Laval University. These students join a prestigious group of grant winners who have historically resulted in PM career veterans and heads of PM companies.

MPIF 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.
