Student Travel Grants

The 2010 IEEE International Power Modulator and High Voltage Conference will provide Student Travel Grants to promising students to help defray the costs of attending the conference.  These awards, ranging from $500 to $1000, are reserved for full-time graduate, or undergraduate university students in the fields of engineering, science or technology.  The criteria for selection will be based on the student's accomplishments and future plans, level of participation in the conference, and individual need relative to the expected travel costs.  The applicant should be the primary author of at least one paper to be presented at the conference.  Students who wish to be considered for the Student Travel Grants should submit a complete nomination package consisting of: 

  • A letter of nomination from the student's research director (Faculty Advisor) or department head.
  • Copy of the submitted 2010 IPMHVC abstract(s) where the student is the primary author or a co-author.
  • A letter (200 to 300 words) from the student detailing their expected participation in the conference and what they hope to learn by attending.
  • A budget itemizing cost of the travel to student.  Please identify cost sharing by the student's faculty advisor or the institution.
  • A summary of the student's educational accomplishments, including, awards, recognition, GPA, etc (no more than 1 page cv or resume), and if available, a brief summary of the student's research contributions and publication (not more than 1/2 page in length).


Recipients will be notified by April 9, 2010 and will receive a monetary award grant to be applied to the cost of attendance. The grants, distributed by check, will be presented to the recipients at the conference. 

Please submit nomination packages no later than March 19, 2010, to the Student Travel Grants Chair, Dr. Raymond Allen at
