The Catalysis Club of Philadelphia (CCP) is taking applications for the Theodore A. Koch Travel Award.
The award is sponsored in memory of T.A Koch in order to recognize and reward graduate student achievements in catalysis research. T.A. Koch (1925–2014) was a chemist who worked at DuPont, and spent his entire career developing chemical processes and bringing them from the benchtop to commercialization with marked creativity and tenacity. The award will provide financial support to a graduate student up to the amount of $1000 to attend a conference of his or her choice. The amount can be used to cover registration fees and/or travel expenses.
Eligibility: Graduate students that are members of the CCP and have paid the annual dues ($10). Selection will be based on potential impact of the travel award to the student’s career goals, financial need and overall merit. (The completed application form should not exceed three pages.)
The application form is due February 11th 2019, and the winner will be announced at our February 21st meeting.
Please send your applications to Eric Sacia (CCP Chair, firstname.lastname@example.org).
