MCS Graduate Student Conference Funding Award Winners Announced

By Ben Panko

Three winners have been announced for the fifth round of the Mellon College of Science Graduate Student Conference Funding Award.

The award was created by Rebecca W. Doerge, Glen de Vries Dean of the Mellon College of Science, to help graduate students fund travel to conferences and workshops that will further their research. The award gives individual students or groups attending the same meeting up to $500 in supplemental funding for travel, and priority is given to applicants who have already secured funding from other sources.

The winners and the meetings they plan to attend are as follows:

  • Husni Almoubayyed (Physics): LSST Dark Energy Science Winter Collaboration Meeting, Dark Energy School and Hack Day
  • Sayan Mandal (Physics): Magnetic Fields in the Universe 7
  • Madeline Sauleda (Physics): American Physical Society March Meeting

The deadline for applications for the award for the second half of 2020 is June 1; interested students can find more information online.
