Student-Member Travel Grants

The Society of Rheology is offering student-member travel grants to support the cost of attending its 90th Annual Meeting in Houston, Texas during October 14-18, 2018. These grants are available to any graduate student who is a member in good standing of the Society as of June 1, 2018 and whose faculty advisor is also a member as of that date. In addition, the student must coauthor a paper or present a poster at the meeting, and stay in the official meeting hotel (rooms will be arranged upon awarding of the grant). We anticipate that each grant will cover up to a maximum of four nights lodging at the conference rate (sorry, no funds are available for registration or travel costs to and from the meeting). Only students who have not received a travel grant for an SOR meeting (or the SOR ICR travel grant) in the past are eligible. To apply, the student must write a letter requesting the grant; and the student's advisor should add a letter of support, certifying that both the advisor and the student are members of the Society and indicate the title and session of the submitted presentation abstract (or poster) and that the student will be the presenter. Only one application per faculty advisor will be accepted for this meeting. Letters from the student and advisor should be uploaded as ONE PDF file to:

Application Submission Site

Submissions will be accepted starting June 1, 2018 and closing on August 17, 2018. Applications will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Notification will be made shortly thereafter. Conference hotel regisration deadline is September 23, 2018 (or until the group block is sold-out).

Inquires can be sent to SoR-STG.
