to submit nomination packages is March 21, 2014.
The awards are the High Voltage Association Student Excellence Award which is open to graduate level research students and the Tom R.
Burkes Student Awards which are open to both the graduate and undergraduate level research students.
Students applying for an award must be an author or co-author of a paper that is accepted for inclusion in the conference technical program. To be considered for
the graduate level awards, nominees must be current graduate students or recent graduate degree recipients (within 18 months prior to
the conference date) and should be members of IEEE at the time of the award presentation.
The nomination package for all student awards includes:
- A letter of nomination including the studentís accomplishments from the student's research director (advisor) or department head.

there is more than one accepted abstract, the extended-version
should be based on the accepted abstract that is deemed to be primary by the
student and/or nominator. (Maximum 2 pages)
The student awards committee will consider all graduate student nominees for either the High Voltage Association Student Excellence Award or

In 2002, the IEEE International Power Modulator Conference created two Student Awards in honor of Dr. Tom R. Burkes, Professor, Texas Tech
The awards are: Outstanding Graduate Student Award: Established to recognize contributions by a graduate student in engineering, science
associated with power modulation, power electronics, or repetitive pulsed power. Exceptional Undergraduate Student Award: Established to
recognize and encourage an outstanding undergraduate student in his/her early career in engineering, science or technology associated with power
modulation, power electronics or repetitive pulsed power.
Nominees for both awards must be current students or recent graduates (up to 18 months prior to the conference date) and should
