International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials

June 17–20, 2017 • Grand Hyatt San Antonio • Texas

Student Grant Support from the National Science Foundation

The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) is pleased to announce that, for the second year in a row, a National Science Foundation grant will provide support to select students from U.S. colleges and universities to attend POWDERMET2018 & AMPM2018 conferences in San Antonio, June 17–20, 2018.

2017 National Science Foundation Students


  • The awards will only cover the conference registration fee and the hotel accommodation in double occupancy.
  • Any travel-related expenses are covered by the student or his/her institution.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Students from U.S. institutions
  • Attend the entire conference (June 17–20)
  • Preparation of a project poster to be displayed at the conference and a 10-minute synopsis of the poster during a scheduled poster session. The poster topic shoudl be on research that catches the cutting edge of powder metallurgy or particulate technology. This requirement is designed to further enhance the student's conference experience. To learn about poster requirements and 10-minute synopsis click here.

Failure to adhere to these requirements will result in losing the award and the student will become liable for the costs.

Email Stephanie Schember or call 609-452-7700 x114 with any questions.

The application deadline has passed. Students will be notified over the coming months if they have been accepted.

MPIF is grateful to the National Science Foundation for its support of students to attend the POWDERMET2018 & AMPM2018 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.
