The North American Members (NAM) of the UNITECR International Executive Board have established a student funding program for attendance and participation in UNITECR’13. The NAM will award approximately 10 to 20 scholarships based on academic merit and/or the applicant’s demonstrated experience or interest in the field of refractories. Funding levels will be commensurate based on whether the student is an attendee versus a presenter of an accepted technical paper.

Application requirements
Scholarships are available to college undergraduate or graduate students studying in a North American institution who will be enrolled full time in the 2013-14 academic year in pursuit of a degree in ceramic engineering, materials engineering, metallurgical engineering, mechanical engineering or similarly related discipline such as to have a serious curiosity in refractories.

The NAM will then review the applications and successful applicants will be notified by June 15, 2013. Funding will be awarded upon submission of appropriate original expense receipts for the conference. The expenses submitted may include:

  • Air fare at the economy rate or auto travel and gas.
  • Double occupancy of hotel room (if unshared occupancy please submit explanation for consideration).
  • Food (The conference will include most meals.)
  • Conference fees
  • Ground transportation to and from the airport
