Awards to Support Students

Ergo-X Symposium: Exoskeletons in the Workplace

The Council of Technical Groups will again offer two opportunities for students to apply for funding to assist them in attending the 2018 Annual Meeting. Applications for both awards are due May 15, 2018.
The Council of Technical Groups Travel Award for First Year Graduate Students (formerly the First-Year Student Travel Honorarium Program) provides $599 for graduate students who are in the first year of their academic program (entered the program no earlier than Fall of 2017). Students must be members of HFES at the time of application. Applicants who submit completed applications will be selected through a process that first randomizes across program/departments (to maximize distribution of awards across programs) and then randomizes within a program. View the complete details and application form at http://bit.ly/HFES1stYearStudentAward.
The Council of Technical Groups Student Presenter Award provides $599 to students who are authors of accepted papers or posters for the HFES Annual Meeting. The student must be listed as the presenting author of the work at the time of submission. Students must be members of HFES at the time of application. Nominations for this award must be submitted by a faculty member in the student's program. (The nominator does not have to be an advisor or coauthor of the work). Full details and the application form may be found at http://bit.ly/
Students who are granted these awards will receive a check at the Annual Meeting.
Members who would like to make a tax-deductible donation to HFES to help support these student awards can find a contribution form at http://cms.hfes.org/Cms/media/CmsImages/
