The sponsors of the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) have announced the continuation of a travel support programme of $40,000 for students planning to attend APEC 2015, which takes place from 17th to 21st March in Charlotte, NC.
The APEC Student Attendance Travel Support Award programme, now in its tenth year, was established by the Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA) and is sponsored by the IEEE Power Electronics Society and the IEEE Industry Applications Society. A total of 43 students from around the world will benefit from this programme, which will subsidise a portion of the travel and conference expenses.
A cross-section of engineering students pursuing a career in power electronics will be awarded as part of the programme. These students will be travelling from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, and the United States.
“Each of the students selected is an author or co-author of a paper accepted for presentation at APEC 2015,” said Joe Horzepa, Executive Director, PSMA. “With over 100 applicants, selection of the recipients was a challenging exercise. It is encouraging to see so many universities around the globe with world-class power electronics programmes.”
