Theodore A. Koch Travel Award 2018–2019

Dear Col­leagues,

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, eric.​r.​sacia@​dupont.​com).


Best Regards,

Eric Sacia
