Industrial Oil Products (IOP) Division 2016 Junior Researcher Travel Grant

The program was established to encourage junior level faculty to become active in the IOP Division and the Society.

The funds allocated to the individuals are intended to partially pay travel and meeting registration expenses to attend the 107th AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo. It is anticipated that the funds may not cover the total expenses incurred and this grant would supplement other travel funds.

  • maximum number of individual grants per year limited to two (2)
  • total of all grant disbursements for any given year may not exceed $1,500
    • individual grants limited to no more than $750
    • individual grant limits may vary based upon need, location, and funds available
  • the review committee will determine which expenses shall be reimbursed

  • junior researchers (less than five [5] years of employment) at any institution of higher learning or research laboratory
    • preference given to junior researchers who demonstrate an interest in becoming active in the IOP Division
  • full professors are not eligible
  • individual can only receive this grant one time
  • failure to receive a grant does not bar further consideration for subsequent years

The applicant should submit:
  • an application statement
    • limited to 300-1000 word summary describing the significance of the individual’s accomplishments in research
    • should clearly demonstrate how the applicant’s research interests are consistent with activities of the IOP Division, and the applicant’s potential for future participation in IOP activities
